Summerfest in York

Celebrating the 31th Year for this Wonderful Family Festival 

The 31st year of York's celebration of Summer is to be held on Saturday, August 23, 2014.

With 31 years in the making, Summerfest has enhanced its already amazing selection of activities for family fun. Held in beautiful, historic downtown York, South Carolina, Summerfest attracts thousands upon thousands of visitors from throughout the Carolinas and beyond. The long-standing festival, held each year on the fourth Saturday in August, was originally designed to showcase York's magnificent Historic District, flowing now through the major portion of the downtown area. Summerfest features lots of grand entertainment, plenty of great food, a remarkable car show, arts and crafts, children's activities, demonstrations and much, much more!

Preparation for Summerfest begins in early Spring each year and is staffed by over 100 volunteers who bring their talent and expertise to make York's annual event the largest one day festival in South Carolina. Summerfest has received numerous honors as being one of the top ten tourism attractions in the state and continues to provide some of the best events for tourists and local/regional citizens each year.
