A Place to Spend Quality Time
Festivals, Adventure, Museums, and More
Eager crowds from around the Carolinas and beyond join us annually for festivals and events celebrating the deliciousness of BBQ, the rich history of the area, and the moving art created by our residents. They also come for endless outdoor adventure and a myriad of local attractions, shops, and historic sites. See below for all this and more!
Festivals & Events
Fan-favorite annual festivals like Rock Around the Clock, Pig on the Ridge, and others provide great times for residents and visitors to move their feet, satisfy their appetites, and find their next great treasure.
Whether you’re drawn to the peace and quiet of the great outdoors, the thrill of hunting, fishing, and motorsports, or the spectatorship of year-round sporting events played at the highest level, Fairfield County is smack in the middle – or just a short drive away – from every bit of it.
Naturally, a wide variety of local attractions appeals to a wide variety of people, and the residents of Fairfield County welcome all with a smile and willingness to share. Wherever you go – be it the Railroad Museum, the Town Clock, or a charming bed and breakfast – friendly locals will greet you along the way.
Where to Shop
Head to downtown Winnsboro or Ridgeway to check out artist studios, gift shops, antique stores, and a 1840s hardware store that’s hardly changed a bit since its inception. If you’re looking for mall or shopping center environment, nearby Columbia and Charlotte are home to a variety of national and local retailers.
