SC State Fair October 11 To October 22


OCTOBER 11 -22, 2017

The South Carolina State Fair is best known for bringing 12 days of exhibits, competitions, food, midway rides and big-name entertainment to Columbia each October. It’s ranked one of the Top 50 fairs in the United States.

The organization, though, operates year-round. With six exhibit halls and 115 acres adjacent to the University of South Carolina’s Williams-Brice Stadium, the fair offers football parking and is a popular venue for major events such as craft shows, home and garden shows, boat shows, civic functions and charitable fundraisers.


The South Carolina State Fair is a local, self-sustaining, non-profit organization.

Since 1997, our fair has donated over $3 million in scholarships for SC students.

The modern state fair attended by 500,000+ today got its start in November 1839, when the State Agricultural Society of South Carolina was organized in Columbia.

In 1869 it was reorganized as the State Agricultural and Mechanical Society of South Carolina, the fair received a $5,000 appropriation from the legislature and erected buildings at its first site on Elmwood Avenue. 

In 1861, Confederate authorities occupied the fair’s buildings, using them as a place to make war munitions.  In 1865, Sherman's army burned the buildings.

In April 1869, the Society was resurrected. The City of Columbia partially reconstructed the buildings, and private funds were raised to create a statewide fair. At that time, the legislature appropriated $2,500 annually to assist the Society.

As the state fair expanded, it outgrew its Elmwood location. In 1904, the Society moved the fair to its present location on Rosewood Drive.
