Park gates open at nine o'clock AM. Aiken State Park charges $2 for parking. Registration opens at 9:00 AM and the festivities will begin at 10:00 AM.

Aiken State Park features swimming and boating facilities, including a canoe and kayak trail along the South Fork Edisto River. There are also hiking trails around the festival area, and camping grounds if you want to make a weekend of it.*

We will have a home-cooked BBQ lunch with all the fixins. Bring a cooler (no alcoholic beverages, please) and a picnic blanket for the family - well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome to join, too.

The event is free to FRED members. If you're not a member yet, you can join FRED for special starting annual dues of $10. If you are a member whose membership has lapsed, the renewal fee is $25 for a Basic membership. Non-members can enjoy the all-day activities for a donation of $10.
