Sweet Tea Saturday
The Sweet Tea Festival is a celebration of the birthplace of sweet tea, right here in Summerville SC. Our Historic Downtown is transformed into a massive open house / street fair with different food trucks, artisanal vendors and entertainment. Of course, there is plenty of sweet tea and you can help select the Tea of the Year by sampling and voting for your favorite!

Historic Downtown Summer is everything you imagine a small town to be. It’s filled with quaint shops, historic buildings, creative boutiques and world class restaurants. Our business owners and their staff represent true southern hospitality with remarkable customer service and genuine care for all that visit.
