The Award Winning Pageland Watermelon Festival Returns in 2016!

We hope you are making plans to join us July 15-16 as the tradition of the Pageland Watermelon Festival continues in 2016! Come and enjoy live music and entertainment as you walk through the streets of downtown Pageland. The events begin Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm. There will be something for everyone in the vendor area and special events and entertainment throughout the day for the children. Enjoy the music as the sun goes down on this sweet rural town. Come see one of South Carolina’s largest parades on Saturday morning. It will provide plenty of entertainment, laughter and fun for the family. Savor the delicious variety of foods as the beautiful wares of the crafters lure you. Children will enjoy a variety of events throughout the day in Moore’s Park. Don’t forget the old fashioned seed spitting and watermelon eating contests for all ages. Admire the awesome talents displayed at the festival rodeo each night. Gather with us to enjoy the company of friends and visitors at the end of each day, and take in the music and entertainment of live bands. Enjoy reminiscing about yesteryear at our old-fashioned festival in the heart of the Carolinas. There is something for all ages from 1 to 100, so come join us for a little taste of summertime fun!
