The Flowertown Festival takes place this weekend in Summerville, so if you feel like hanging out with 200,000 of your closest friends, shopping handmade goods, listening to music and eating BBQ, this is your spot. Check out the details below:
The Summerville Family YMCA is proud of its award-winning fundraiser – the Flowertown Festival. The YMCA, with the help of the Town of Summerville, has been able to organize, coordinate and direct this unique event that showcases the great community we live in.
With the help of town administrators, local police and fire personnel, plus the hard work of countless volunteers, the Flowertown Festival attracts over 200,000 annually and has been a signature event of the YMCA since its inception in 1972.
Since the YMCA is a non-profit organization, the net proceeds from the Flowertown Festival are used to continue the organization’s philanthropic mission by offering programs at an affordable rate and helping families in need who cannot afford to pay program or membership fees.
Consistently ranked one of the Top 20 events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society, the three-day festival features:
Over 200 jury-selected artists from throughout the country who display their work for sale
Delicious foods from restaurants at The Taste.
Fun activities and rides for children at the Children’s Jubilee
Arts & Crafts Vendors Applicants must hand-make all of the items they sell and no item may be bought and resold. Each item that is to be sold must go through the Festival Jury Process.
