Covid-19 UPDATE

Dear Friends, As we navigate through this pandemic, more than ever, we need community and hope to see this crisis through. For this reason, Summerfest is moving forward and planning a great event, whether it be this year, or next year. If you are a vendor who has sent in an application recently, we will not cash your payments until after this situation has passed. We encourage any other vendors who wish to place hope in our future to go ahead and mail in your application without payment. We will hold your place in order of receipt. Once we start processing applications, we will contact each vendor to confirm attendance. For all our current vendors and sponsors, if your payment has been made, please be assured, if for any reason our event is cancelled this year, you will receive a full refund. However, if you are interested in a Sponsorship and wish to put in your good-faith confirmation, we will happily welcome your future commitment. Please email us with your interest. Until then, we wish everyone good health. Please practice #socialdistancing and respect the laws set forth by our Governor and health & safety recommendations from DHEC and the CDC. You may also call our Event Coordinator, Karen Fritz if you have questions about Summerfest (803) 627-4302
