Walterboro’s Rice Festival
The 2022 Colleton County Rice Festival has been scheduled for April 29-30, 2022.
This annual event features arts and crafts, food, fireworks, music, a parade and much more! Competitors can take part in the corn hole tournament and Rice Run.
According to the Rice Festival website, “Since it first arrived in 1685, rice helped create enormous wealth for the Lowcountry, and Colleton County was perfect for growing it. During the annual Rice Festival, we celebrate the heritage of rice in this community and the beauty of the people and land that continue to bless this great country.”
Come enjoy a fun-filled week of family activities in the warm Carolina sun. The Rice Festival has all the elements that make it fun for the entire family. Central to the festival is an arts and crafts area with a wide array of handcrafted items. The queen of the Rice Festival is crowned in a special pageant and she takes her rightful place of honor in the Rice Festival Parade as it meanders through downtown as a kickoff event to the festival. A 5K run, rated one of the top races in South Carolina, is another signature event for the festival. And what Carolina Festival is complete without a food court? Sprinkle in activities such as fireworks, music, and other entertainment, and you’ve got an event sure to please the entire family.
Explore the streets of our county seat and experience a full schedule of family activities. Come see why Walterboro is the front porch of the Lowcountry. For more information visit Ricefestival.org or follow them on Facebook.
