Friends of the Edisto (FRED) invites you to attend the Fifth Annual “Blackwater Summer Festival” at beautiful Aiken State Park on Saturday, June 23, 2018. 

Park gates open at nine o’clock AM. Aiken State Park charges $2 for parking. 

As always, music is going to be featured at Blackwater 2018. The morning set will feature “Flat Out Strangers” with gypsy jazz and American swing. The afternoon set will be rockabilly, country, and old time pop sounds from “Parker’s Back”.

Aiken State Park features swimming and boating facilities, including a canoe and kayak trail along the South Fork Edisto River. There are also hiking trails around the festival area, and camping grounds if you want to make a weekend of it!*

We will have a BBQ lunch. Bring a cooler (no alcoholic beverages, please), chairs, and a picnic blanket for the family – well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome to join, too!

The event is free to FRED members. If you’re not a member yet, you can join FRED for special starting annual dues of $10.

If you are a member whose membership has lapsed, the renewal fee is $25 for a Basic membership. Non-members can enjoy the all-day activities for a donation of $10.
