The Indian Land Fall Festival started over eight years ago as a way to get families together in the Indian Land Community during the month of September. The first festival took place on the grounds of Sun City Carolina Lakes in Indian Land, but growth forced a move to the Middle School, and then another to its present location at the City of Light on Charlotte Highway in Indian Land. The Festival location (please see the map) is a central hub for some key communities bordering both SC and NC including, but not limited to: Indian Land, Sun City, Fort Mill, Lancaster in SC and Waxhaw, Ballantyne, South Charlotte, Pineville, Weddington in NC. The Festival has grown over the years and attendance has been over 10,000 in years prior.
There is plenty to offer at this year’s Festival including a silent auction, entertainment which in the past has included bands, karate demonstrations, and dance demonstrations. For children of all ages at this year’s Festival there will be a Kid’s Area which will include some fun activities and games, inflatables, laser tag, etc.
This year, once again the Indian Land Fall Festival will host the South Carolina Chili
Championship Cookoff. Winner of the event will have the opportunity to represent South Carolina in the National/International competition in West Texas.
If you have attended the Fall Festival in the past, no doubt you will want to come again. Please feel free to bring additional friends and family. There is no fee to attend the Festival although there is a nominal fee for the Kid’s Area and for sampling chili during the SC State Chili Championship Cookoff.
Donations for parking and/or attendance would be appreciated – but are not mandatory. All funds raised during the Fall Festival will be used to fund/sponsor numerous civic and non-profit events and projects in the Indian Land Community.
On behalf of the Indian Land Rotary Club, and its many volunteers , we look forward to seeing you all on September 28th at the City of Light!
