This is a place where we share stories, favorite traditions, peek behind-the-scenes, and showcase the many people that have a passion for the South Carolina State Fair.
From corn dogs and blue-ribbon roses to roller coasters and prize-winning pigs, the South Carolina State Fair is best known for bringing 12 days of exhibits, competitions, food, midway rides and entertainment to Columbia each October. We are that – and beyond. The South Carolina State Fair is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that operates year-round. We have six exhibit halls and 104 acres adjacent to the University of South Carolina’s Williams-Brice Stadium. The South Carolina State Fair offers football parking and is a popular venue for major events such as home and garden shows, civic functions and charitable fundraisers. The South Carolina State Fair is also home to Columbia’s downtown holiday drive-through lights show, Carolina Lights.
