South Carolina Strawberry Festival
There are many reasons the South Carolina Strawberry Festival has received awards such as South Carolina’s Event of the Year, twice, Best Event Poster, three times, and has been nationally recognized by Businessweek and Family Circle Magazines. Each year this family-friendly festival attracts visitors throughout the state and region. The festival has a number of events leading up to the two days in the park, including a golf tournament, “Cause Before Crown” pageant, and the Downtown Strawberry Jam. The festival culminates the first full weekend of May in Walter Elisha Park and features a car show, butterfly exhibit, an entertainment stage, family focused tent, eating contests, food, business and craft vendors, rides, fireworks, strawberries and so much more.
The festival showcases our beautiful historic Town of Fort Mill and provides a venue where residents, friends and visitors can come together in a fun, safe, and family-friendly environment. The Festival seeks to promote tourism, encourage economic development, enhance the quality of life, and foster community pride. Following the festival, 100% of the proceeds of the festival go back to local and non-profit organizations, enabling them to provide services which enhance the quality of life in Fort Mill. The festival committee is largely comprised of volunteers who are committed to showcasing Fort Mill and bringing family and community together. However, the Festival sponsors make it all possible. Join us in 2018 for the 9th Annual SC Strawberry Festival where families and community are celebrated.
