Okra Strut Festival
The Okra Strut Festival, hosted by the Town of Irmo and managed by the Town Council and the Okra Strut Commission, will be held September 29-30, 2023. The festival is a two-day event featuring live bands on both Friday and Saturday evenings and a Saturday morning parade, which is the largest in the entire state of South Carolina. Additionally, arts and crafts vendors, rides and amusements, live music and entertainment and lots of yummy festival food can be enjoyed throughout the day Saturday. Attendance for the celebration averages around 25,000 attendees annually but has seen as many as 60,000 visitors to the previous festivals. Money raised by the festival is put back into the community through charitable contributions to local civic and school organizations, for scholarships and improvements of public areas.
2023 is the Okra Strut Festival’s 49th year. That is almost half a century providing families from all over the United States with the perfect end of summer destination. With Lake Murray near by, Irmo has some of the most beautiful campgrounds, so spend the week, enjoy your stay and end your summer the right way.
