Mark your calendars! The annual Rosewood Crawfish Festival will be returning this year on May 1st.
The festival, which had to cancel their 2020 event, will take place at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds. It will be the first festival to take place in Columbia since the onset of the pandemic and will include a plethora of delicious crawfish, local vendors and live music.
On the decision to move forward with the festival, Dave Britt, one of the event’s promoters and event planners, said “I think that in order to find our way back in events someone’s got to do it, and start putting the model together….We just felt like with the pushing of the vaccine, the timing, it seems like we would probably be able to do it safely, and we just wanted to get some people back to Rosewood and get involved with events again.
To protect staff and patrons, the festival will require everyone to wear masks when they are not eating or drinking and will limit the number of people allowed in the venue.
