Blue Crab Festival in Little River SC – what a great weekend this will be.

Everyone enjoys the weekend’s festivities, and locals and visitors alike attend this celebrated annual event, to experience the fun and tradition. The goal is certainly for folks to have a good time, and create many great memories to last them a lifetime, but the Festival Committee has an additional goal, too. The ‘World Famous’ Blue Crab Festival is unique, in that its purpose is to raise money to help support the community, local organizations and its residents. Additionally, events are held throughout the year that the Festival Committee participates in, on behalf of the ‘WorldFamous’ Blue Crab Festival, to supplement the local community and to promote Little River. One of the most well attended and respected 2 day festivals in South Carolina and along the South East Region.

The Celebration of the Arts started in 2003 as a street-type art fair and has grown to a large art festival with more than 80 art vendors. The Celebration of the Arts is part of a town-wide festival called Celebrate Fuquay-Varina. This festival showcases regional music acts as well as a variety of free, family-fun entertainment. The combination of music, great food, fun activities and incredible art vendors attracts large crowds.

The art festival features artists and fine crafts people producing original work. Many categories of original art work are represented including jewelry, basketry, clay and ceramic creations, soap, candles, decorative painting, fine art painting, garden art, metal work, furniture, drawings, and folk art.  The 2015 Celebration of the Arts Festival will be Saturday, June 6.


Twin City Rib Fest. What has become an annual Winston-Salem event heralding summer's arrival originated in a downtown church parking lot in 2005. And since then 20-25,000 Twin City BBQ fans come out for the good food and fun. Daring to promote a whole 'nother type of 'cue; something beyond Lexington style BBQ, promoter Allen McDavid launched the first RibFest with Shiner Bock beer as the title sponsor. "Where is it written that pork barbecue has to be chopped or shredded," McDavid asked. "There is more to the pig than shoulders and butts." 

The success of the Twin City RibFest was immediate and helped it gain recognition in Bon Apetit magazine Martha Stewart.com and Our State magazine, as well as being named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Bureau several years running.
