Fresh Fest

www.SCFreshFest.com A True Festival On June 2nd the new South Carolina State Farmers Market will host the Fresh Fest, a true festival amongst festivals. It is being put on by Active Carolina, an initiative to get children, teens, and adults active in the community. It brings together numerous charities, unlike most events, to prove that by coming together as a community we can help each other increase visibility, reach a wider spectrum of the participants, and partner throughout the year by forming mutually beneficial relationships.. The Fresh Fest event will benefit American Diabetes Association, The Ronald McDonald House, Carolina Children’s Home, The Walker Foundation, Special Olympics of South Carolina, and Foundation’s For Life (Non-profit arm of Active Carolina). The day will begin with a 5K, a 10K, and a Walk to Fight Diabetes that will be followed by a few surprise twists unlike most runs along with awards and prizes for the participants. While this is going on a local DJ will be playing some motivating morning music as the Farmer’s Market serves up 500 Free BLTs. 11 o’clock kicks off the Festival of activities, including: Live Music, Food Truck Round-Up with some of the best local food in the Midlands, a watermelon eating contest, and Kid’s Fun Zone with bounce houses, games, mascots, face painting, and much much more. Celebrity guest will be signing autographs shortly after the race awards; both Darren Sharper, super bowl champion with the 2010 New Orleans Saints and 5 time Pro-Bowler At the same time the festival is going on everyone is encouraged to tour the new facility of the Farmer’s Market, such as; Judy’s at The Market, The Produce Shed, The Flower & Plant Sheds, and special displays created just for the Fresh Fest. For individuals wanting a fun night out at one of the most exciting GALAs of the year come out the night before for the Fresh Fest GALA put on by Columbia Style Week. This event will be held at the new South Carolina Farmer’s Market Convention Center and will include a Silent Auction, Fresh and Fit Fashion Show, Live Music, and some surprise entertainment that will do nothing less than impress.
