South Carolina State Fair

The countdown is on to the 145th South Carolina State Fair, October 8th – 19th at the SC State Fairgrounds in Columbia. Activities and events include a petting zoo, sand sculpting, food demonstrations, amusement park rides, a free concert by MC Hammer and much more!

The most famous landmark on the Fairgrounds, The Rocket, was given to the city of Columbia in the early 1960s by the United States Air Force. It’s a PGM-19 ballistic missile that has become a landmark attraction and a gathering spot for attendees to “Me Me At The Rocket!”
