Each year the City of Westminster shines when Main Street comes alive with people celebrating all things apple!

Oconee County is the largest apple producing region in South Carolina. The SC Apple Festival began in 1961, and continues to this day, as a way to showcase and honor local apple growers. The festival is held the week after Labor Day and kicks off the beginning of the apple harvest season.
