When the weather gets crisp and the leaves start to turn, expect the harvest festivals, outdoor concerts, street fairs, and collegiate enthusiasm to be kicked up a notch.
Transition your wardrobe into your favorite team's colors and gear up for the return of college football (Go Gamecocks)! Immerse yourself in music, food, art and history at Historic Columbia’s annual Jubilee: Festival of Black History & Culture. Eat your way around the world at the Columbia Greek Festival, Oktoberfest Columbia (prost, y’all!) and the Korean Festival. Or indulge in seasonal flavors at the Irmo Okra Strut, Palmetto Peanut Boil, South Carolina Oyster Festival and the Five Points Chili Cook-Off.
Share in the love at the SC Famously Hot Pride Festival, or rock out at JerryFest and Jam Room Music Festival. Corn dogs, funnel cakes and all things fried will fill you up at the South Carolina State Fair. Pull all kinds of tricks with your friends at Deceased Farm, then savor all the treats with your little ones at Boo at the Zoo this spooky season.
Fall is also the perfect time to get that brisk air pumping through your lungs. Lace up your sneaks and hit the streets of Columbia for the Walk for Life and Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon, USMC Mud Run, Tunnel 2 Towers, and more.
