[ARCHIVED] 2021 SC Strawberry Festival Week of Events

SC Strawberry Festival Logo

Get ready for an exciting slate of events for the 2021 South Carolina Strawberry Festival, which kicks off Friday, April 23 and continues through Saturday, May 1.

From our annual Strawberry Pageant and golf tournament, to new additions such as a 5K race hosted by the Fort Mill Economic Partners and our Music, Flick & Food event, the Town plans to offer the same fun, family-friendly atmosphere as previous years with a socially distanced twist. Though our traditional festival in Walter Y. Elisha Park will not take place this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Town is committed to keeping the spirit of the festival alive through a variety of other events! See below:

Check out this year's Opening Ceremony  for the 2021 festival, with comments from Fort Mill Mayor Guynn Savage and local artist Debbie Whitsett of Olives Mud Puddle in Downtown Fort Mill, who created this year's festival poster.
