Events

Our signature events give many additional opportunities for networking and sponsorships to all members. The Chamber’s Annual Golf Tournament is held in August, and the Annual Aunt Het Fall Festival, always held the first Saturday of October, is a favorite with everyone. It brings thousands of visitors to our wonderful downtown area with crafters, food vendors, music, a classic car show, two-day quilt show and much more.

The Spirit of Christmas Past Christmas Parade is a favorite in the Golden Strip area, and enhances Fountain Inn’s two-week Christmas event with carriage rides, food, carolers and shopping in unique downtown stores. Our Annual Horse Show, sanctioned by CHSA, is a favorite spring event with all our equestrian lovers.

Our Chamber loves helping those in need. Here, we help “give back” throughout the year in various ways. Our classic car show at the Aunt Het Festival collects nonperishable food for God’s Pantry.

From late October until Christmas, the Chamber is an official drop-off point for One Warm Coat, a national organization that collects new and slightly worn clothing for men, women and children. All the clothing remains in our community, going to our local James Monroe Mission House. Volunteers at the James Monroe Mission House serve and distribute food and clothing weekly at no cost to over 350 families in the Upstate’s Golden Strip area.

In July is our Cruise-in for School Supplies when the Chamber partners with Bojangles, Unique Car Club of Greenville and others. The school supplies are given to Generations Group Home for Boys.
