60th year of the South Carolina Apple Festival

Each year the City of Westminster shines when its downtown 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 begin in 1961, and continues to this day, as a way to showcase and honor nearby apple growers.  The festival is held the week after Labor Day and kicks off the beginning of the apple harvest season.

Head over to Westminster and enjoy live music, carnival rides, local crafts and food vendors.  Whet your appetite and sample homemade apple treats while you shop booths offering hand crafted items.
