Flowertown Festival | Summerville Family YMCA

Every spring, the Town of Summerville is awash in color – from the hot pink azaleas, to the purple wisteria, to the delicate white dogwood. On one 3-day weekend during this season, thousands of festival-goers transcend this gracious Southern town to take in the flowers and hospitality and attend one of the largest arts and crafts festivals in the Southeast – The YMCA Flowertown Festival.

Consistently ranked one of the Top 20 events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society, the three-day festival features:

  • Over 200 jury-selected artists from throughout the country who display their work for sale
  • Delicious foods from restaurants at The Taste
  • Fun activities and rides for children at the Children’s Jubilee
  • Free admission
  • Free Parking

2014 Flowertown Festival dates are: April 4-6, 2014

In 1972, the Flowertown Festival was the brainchild of Jean Gantt and Nina Spell, volunteers for the Young Women’s Christian Organization (YWCO). They, along with their friends, dreamed of hosting an “azalea festival” in which the proceeds raised would benefit the YWCO and the youth in Summerville. Now 40 years later, the Flowertown Festival continues to support its mission to raise funds for the Summerville Family YMCA.

Since the YMCA is a non-profit organization, the net proceeds from the Flowertown Festival are used to continue the organization’s philanthropic mission by offering programs at an affordable rate and helping families in need who cannot afford to pay program or membership fees.

Over 15,000 people in Summerville, and its surrounding communities, participate in YMCA sponsored programs and membership.

The Summerville YMCA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the beauty of nature and international friendship through year-round programs, events, and educational initiatives that enhance our environment, showcase arts and culture, and build community spirit.
