RenoFest Bluegrass Festival

RenoFest was started in 1998 as a one day concert in Hartsville, SC. Since then, it has become a regional tradition and wonderful opportunity to welcome both the beginning of Springtime and the start of America’s bluegrass festival season. In January of 2006, RenoFest was honored by the SC Festival & Event Association with its most prestigious award, the “State Event of the Year.” RenoFest is reminiscent of the good old “County Fair Days” of yesterday as host of the South Carolina’s only State Championship Bluegrass Band, Guitar and Banjo Contests. Additionally RenoFest offers concerts featuring America’s best bluegrass musicians. Most events take place in the historic Center Theater in downtown Hartsville, which provides the festival with a luxurious and comfortable “rain or shine” setting…. but the popular “Friday Night Hoe Down” is outdoors and has toes tapping from toddlers to seniors!
