Summerville SC is the birth place of sweet tea.  Every September we celebrate this by hosting the Sweetest Week Ever (September 13th through the 18th). This week-long celebration features Sweetest sales ever, special events such as, but not limited to Somerville Symphony Jazz Ensemble performance, new public works art display and sweetest silent disco. Of course, the entire week is capped off with the community’s premier event, Sweet Tea Festival on September 18th from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM 

The festival encompasses the entire historic downtown area in features live entertainment, craft booths and of course all the sweet tea you can enjoy
