Blue Ridge Fest

Beach NIght & Largest Cruise-In in the Upstate

Welcome to one of the premier charity events in Upstate South Carolina—Blue Ridge Fest. Celebrating its 21st Anniversary, Blue Ridge Fest combines great entertainment and a classic car cruise-in where hundreds of classic cars will be on display along with good food and the best hosts around. Hosted by Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative employees, this annual fundraiser has donated more than $2.5 million throughout its first 20 years to benefit local Upstate charities. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. on Friday, May 4, the stage will be home to some of the finest musicians from the 60’s and 70’s and some of the best beach music around—The Spinners, Jim Quick and Coastline and Magic, a variety band of Anderson. Come in a classic car (1989 or older) and $30 admits a carload of up to four. (Paid when you drive in to the cruise-in). Line-up begins at 2:00 p.m. and gates open at 3:00 p.m. Dash plaques are available for the first 400 classic cars. "Blue Ridge Fest is known for the "Largest Cruise-In in the Upstate". Join us for a night of “Great Times for Great Causes” on May 4, 2018. Located at 734 West Main Street in downtown Pickens.
