How do you have a Big outdoor event during a pandemic? You don’t.

Next best thing – Adapt.


COLUMBIA, S.C. – July 29, 2020 — In an effort to give back to the community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the nonprofit South Carolina State Fair will host its first-ever free, Drive-Through S.C. State Fair on Tuesday, Oct. 20 and Wednesday, Oct. 21. Find details leading up to the event at and follow @scstatefair on social media.
“In the midst of the worst global crisis of our lifetime, we wanted to give the community something positive to look forward to,” said General Manager Nancy Smith, who also serves as the current chair of the International Association of Fairs and Exhibitions (IAFE). “Our team is proud to offer a free event where families and friends can experience the joy of the State Fair in a safe and fun environment.”
Guests will enjoy free admission to drive through the fairgrounds and experience unique, car-friendly attractions that highlight South Carolina’s agriculture, history, arts and culture — all from the comfort and safety of their cars. Meanwhile, in a twist on the restaurant drive-through concept, guests will be able to drive into the Lexington Medical Center Fair Park on the fairgrounds, and purchase their favorite fair foods.

Of course it won’t be the same, but it will be one to remember. Let’s keep a good attitude and make the best of this situation. The SC State Fair!
