The Jasper Merchants Association provides many different events for the community of Pickens County and its surrounding cities. The city of Jasper and its Main Street is the site of many wonderful types of FREE events that the Jasper Merchants Association try to bring to the community.
We host the yearly On Main Street Car Cruise-In Shows starting in April until the month of October on the 4th Saturday of each month. The Annual Pickens County Easter Egg Hunt is FREE to all of the children of Pickens County under the age of 12 and is hosted at Lee Newton Park in Jasper, Georgia.
The month of October brings the Boo-Who Scarecrow Contest, which merchants and organizations construct a scarecrow to represent them and they are placed along Main Street in Downtown Jasper the whole month of October. The Trick or Treat on Main Street brings out all the kids in Halloween Costumes from the hours of 4pm to 6pm along Main Street as Businesses and Organizations hand out candy to thousands of children in the community.
The end of the year sees the favorite event of all, among young and old alike, The Night of Lights – Parade of Lights Christmas Event. The 1st Saturday of December brings out our Christmas Spirit as we celebrate the beginning of the Holidays with Live Entertainment, Christmas themed vendors, Pictures with Santa Claus, the lighting of the community Christmas Tree, and ending with the Lighted Christmas Parade that sends Santa Claus on his way back to the North Pole.
