Cultural Festival Food has something for everyone!

Aunny’s County Kitchen will be joining us this year as a food vendor. She will be serving a traditional fish, red rice, beans or coleslaw meal. She will also be bringing desserts - including her famous sweet potato pie!

The Caribbean Creole Food truck will be joining us again this year with just as tasty of a menu as last year:

  • Vegan Salad (Spring mix, cucumber, onion, black beans, roasted corn, roasted sweet potato, and balsamic dressing) Or a Vegan Wrap
  • Chicken Tenders w Fries
  • Cuban Ropa (Beef Brisket)
  • Jerk Chicken Bowl (comes w yellow rice and beans)
  • Chicken & Sausage Gumbo (served w yellow rice)

The Plantersville Hunting Club surprises us each year with whatever fresh game or fish they bring – no matter what it is, it is guaranteed to be tasty!

And for those with a hankering for grilled items there will be hot dogs and hamburgers available for purchase as well along with water and soft drinks.

About Us

The Tour de Plantersville is a unique cycling event designed to bring people together TO DISCOVER…

Why Plantersville South Carolina

Plantersville offers the only Scenic Byway in Georgetown County. Along the Byway and throughout the ride there are ten plantations from the Colonial era that are part of the region’s rich rice farming history. These sites contain a number of pre-Civil War landmarks – mansions, slave houses, churches, rice Chimneys and other ruins. There are designated stops along the ride to encourage bike-riders to explore these grounds.

In addition, the area is rich in natural beauty. The Dirleton Plantation-Samworth Wildlife Management Area is located along this stretch of byway and offers a chance to see some of the region’s wildlife in its natural habitat.

The Festival

The Cultural Festival is open from 9 – 2 pm. It is an opportunity for friends and families to relax, enjoy the beauty of the area while being in a peaceful location. Bring your lawn chair and relax under the tall pine trees while listening to upbeat music provided by Radio Baha’i from 9 – noon. Then the Reggae band Mystic Vibration takes over until 2 pm.

Sample culinary treats offered by the Plantersville Hunting Club for a donation, and you can purchase savory traditional foods from Aunny’s Country Kitchen or the Low Country Creole Food Truck. Don’t forget to stroll by unique vendors offering local products. Plan on a day that re-charges your “batteries” and creates happy memories.

Children will find much to do as well in the children’s activity area. They can participate in the Georgetown Kiwanis Bike Rodeo for preschoolers -3rd graders from 10am - noon. Please bring your own bicycle as we will have a very limited supply for sharing. There will even be traditional fair type-food to children’s liking for purchase.
