After all the great events during April’s Come See Me Festival, some folks might need a breather from all the fun. In true Rock Hill spirit, though, the good times just keep coming. May 2018 is chock full of performances, festivals, fruit, food and fun. Here are some of the event highlights for May 2018.
The Gospel According to Tennessee
The fun-filled and heart-warming story The Gospel According to Tennessee will run at the NarroWay Theater in Fort Mill through July 28th. The audience will want to sing along with old-time favorites as they chow down on an East Tennessee inspired dinner of fried chicken, mac and cheese, beans and cornbread, and cobbler.
Throughout the month of May, the Bush-N-Vine in York will host Strawberry Saturdays. Bring the whole family for a day of food trucks, bounce houses, or cooking demonstrations. And, of course, weather permitting you can pick your strawberries at the peak of the season. (Be sure to check back for a delicious strawberry pie recipe!)
Tourism is vital to the economy in South Carolina. On Friday, May 11th at the South Carolina Welcome Center in Fort Mill, tourism partners will celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week with the annual Grits Stop. Visitors can learn more about what South Carolina’s Olde English District has to offer while they snack on southern favorites like boiled peanuts, strawberries, sweet tea, and, of course, grits.

Celebrate all things Italian at the 23rd Annual St. Philip Neri Italian Festival held from May 17th through May 19th at Saint Philip Neri Church in Fort Mill. The whole family can join in fun runs, parades, auctions, live performances, and food, food, food. Visitors will also want to check out the more than 65 vendors and artisans. Will you win Saturday evening’s hot pepper eating contest?
