The Town of Pacolet understands the importance of keeping old traditions alive while making new ones. We can achieve that by showing off what makes our town so unique. By gathering the community together with community-wide events, we can strengthen the bonds between our residents and visitors while building a strong sense of pride for the community. Our goal is to bring quarterly events to bring our community together so we can continue the traditions that can be passed down to future generations.
