Chester County’s variety of arts may surprise you! We have a vibrant arts community, thanks to a heritage rich in music, theatre and arts and crafts. We also consider BBQ to be an art around here, and we have some of the best and most famous BBQ pits in the South. With weekend community dances, featuring live local musicians and songwriters; the BBQ Festival, which features two full days of local musicians and artists; and the thriving theatre and fine arts departments at Freed-Hardeman University and the Chester County school system, it’s easy to see that we have a strong passion for art in our community.

Hee Haw

Howdy! The Henderson Hee Haw Hootenanny, sponsored by First Bank, is a volunteer based production featuring live music, local actors and lots of fun! The show is held in the fall at Williams Auditorium on the campus of Chester County Middle School. There is an admission fee, and you are encouraged to buy your tickets prior to show time because this popular community show sells out fast! To purchase tickets, visit
