Six Annual Events Unique to #greenvillesc

Each year, residents and visitors alike enjoy more than 300 "event days" in Greenville. But none are more special or better attended than these Signature Events—unique to Greenville and the world! Be sure to check the calendar and see if the timing of your visit aligns with one. If not—you better plan a second visit! These Signature Events are usually held in May (Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekends), June, September, and October. 🎟️📅

With a colorful array of vibrant visual and performing virtuosos, amazing culinary experiences, and one-of-a-kind stage acts, it's no wonder this nationally recognized arts bash is toasting 19+ years of Main Street magic on Mother's Day weekend!

Put a little wind in your bagpipes (and under the ol' tartan) with Greenville's Scottish Games this Memorial Day weekend! The Upstate goes Highlands for two lively davys of traditional matches, Celtic tunes, and the Great Scot! Parade. 

Jazzing up Downtown Greenville with the smooth sounds of saxophone, trumpets, drums, piano, and more, this new festival (started in 2023), features both national and local jazz acts, food trucks, and fun. 

Thousands of celeb spotters (and quite a few golf fans) flock to a four-day meeting on the greens, where amateur players tee off with pro partners to raise vital funds for area charities. 

Dig into the South's premier celebration of all things edible. With the help of esteemed cuisiniers, skilled sommeliers, crafted tastings, and guest musicians, this ultimate foodie weekend will satisfy each of your five senses. 

'Tis the season to be falling—for Greenville, that is. You just can't beat this Upstate staple's stacked slate of musicians, gourmet how-to's, kiddie activities, and the massive variety of savory cuisine.
