Tens of thousands of Upstate Fairgoers are descending on the Upper South Carolina State Fairgrounds during the annual edition of this Upstate tradition from September 3 - 14.
The Upper South Carolina State Fair has something for everyone, including great food, spectacular entertainment, quality exhibits, and agricultural shows, a spectacular midway featuring rides by Playworld Amusement, and events appealing to the whole family. The fair staff and volunteers, and the Greenville Jaycees are committed to making sure everyone has an enjoyable time, and in order to do so, there are several things a savvy fairgoer needs to know.
A petting zoo, pony rides, and helicopter rides are but a few of the events scheduled for this year's Fair. Local musicians and groups will entertain, and the Fair will once agian play host to the Upstate's largest cruise-in. Meet Miss SC, check out the CASH FOR CLUNKERS 150 Enduro Classic, and encounter elephants!
While entertainment, arts and crafts, 4H agricultural shows, and special events (such as the Demolition Derby) may be some of the reasons not to miss this year's Upper South Carolina State Fair, don't forget the food – and lots of it. The annual Upstate tradition boasts some of the widest variety of food found anywhere. From pizza to Polish sausage, from mouth-watering corn-on-the-cob to funnel cakes, from cotton candy to steak on a stick, all the smells of this delectable food can be found floating throughout the Upper South Carolina State Fairgrounds. How about an old-fashioned hamburger cooked on a grill, with spiral fries? Or maybe a gyro is more to your liking? There are even Cajun specialties on this year's fun menu. Drink options are equally varied, including water, iced tea, fresh-squeezed lemonade, and many more.
Please note that no alcohol, pets, bottles, coolers, bicycles, roller blades, skates, and/or skateboards are permitted on the fairgrounds. For more information, Fair hours, and directions to the fairgrounds, visit www.upperscstatefair.com.
