Held in downtown Columbia, the South Carolina Carnival (SCC) focuses on promoting Caribbean traditions in America. With many Caribbean-themed activities, the organizers want to pay tribute to the Caribbean.

A Festival Driven by the “MUSIC” that represents the vivacious heart beat of the people.

The “FOOD” characterizes our diverse medley of race and color, seasoned with the spirited foundation of multiple “CULTURES”.
