FestiFall, the annual history-based festival at Walnut Grove Plantation in Spartanburg, has been cancelled because of the heavy rains that have hit Upstate South Carolina. The festival, organized by Spartanburg County Historical Association, would have started today, Friday, Oct. 2, with a firearms show and continued on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 3-4. All related activities have been cancelled.
Historically, Walnut Grove Plantation comes to life the first weekend in October as more than 100 re-enactors, storytellers, and artisans transform the 1767 homestead into a living colonial village. The event includes music, dancing, toy making, cooking, weaving, woodworking, basketry, candle dipping, and much more! Historic re-enactments of loyalist partisan William Cunningham’s deadly 1781 raid on the Plantation take place on both days. FestiFall is part of Upstate Revolutionary War Weekend and is presented in partnership with Cowpens National Battlefield, Kings Mountain National Military Park, and the City of Gaffney.
The Association thanks all of the many volunteers, sponsors, supporters, and patrons who make FestiFall happen. More details are expected to be released later.
