Event Description

This free family-friendly event will be held from 11 a.m. until 6 pm on October 4 at Granby Gardens Park located in the City Hall Complex at 1800 12th Street, Cayce. The festival will feature bluegrass performances along with tours of the Cayce Historical Museum and youth-oriented activities, making it a great time for families and children of all ages. The event will be held rain or shine.

Come enjoy top-notch bluegrass bands. The Cayce Events Committee is very excited to announce that headlining this year’s event is Blue Highway. THE GAME, Blue Highway's 11th CD, debuted at #1 on the Roots Music chart, #4 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and as of July is #1 for two consecutive months on both the Bluegrass Unlimited Radio chart and the National Bluegrass Survey.

The festival is a free event, thanks to the generosity of several Cayce-area businesses and organizations. Bring your lawn chairs, but no outside food, coolers or pets, please. The Congaree Bluegrass Festival is an alcohol- and tobacco-free event. Free parking will be available in and around the City Hall Complex and transportation from parking lots will be available to those who need special assistance.
