Sumter Today: COVID-19's impact on Sumter festivals


With COVID-19 still making an impact in South Carolina, we’re now entering the second round of cancellations and postponements for events and festivals after springtime events were first canceled this time last year.

The Inspire! Festival has now been canceled more years that it has happened, with the committee deciding this week they could not hold it due to concerns over spreading the virus.

Iconic Sumter events like the Iris Festival and Festival on the Avenue are still up in the air, while Camden’s Carolina Cup is set to happen but has been postponed until May.
