April showers might bring May flowers, but around Rock Hill, we always want our April to be as rain-free as possible. With so many fun events going on this month, an untimely shower could really put a damper on the good times. Dodge the downbursts and check out these four events happening in April 2018 in Rock Hill.
Piedmont Perspectives, an art exhibition put on by the Catawba River Art Guild, has been on display since the middle of January and will run through the middle of May. Dozens of artists working in a wide variety of media have captured the flora and fauna of the Carolina Piedmont region. A walk through the Museum of York County’s Springs Gallery is like a science lesson and art show in one.
Rock Hill Coca-Cola Bottling Company is proud to present a concert featuring Riannon Giddens. As part of the 2018 Southern Sound Series at the McCelvey Center, this show will highlight the powerful soprano voice of Giddens, who was a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Giddens went solo from the Grammy Award winning group in 2013, and has gone on to acclaim in her own right, winning the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. The concert will take place on April 27th from 7:30 to 10 p.m.
Vernon Grant: An Illustrious Career
On April 12 from 4 to 6 p.m., just before the big kick-off parade for Come See Me, head over to the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce to get a first look at the exhibit Vernon Grant: An Illustrious Career. The display highlights Grants contributions to the life of the Rock Hill and York County communities. If you can’t make it to the opening event, the exhibit will be on display through January 2019.
Come See Me Festival
Once again this year, Rock Hill Coca-Cola Bottling Company has the honor of being an official sponsor of the Come See Me Festival. This year’s festival promises to live up to the tradition of a great community festival that has been going strong since 1962. Starting with Glen and Glenda riding in an 80s-themed parade and winding up with a giant tailgate party at Winthrop Lake, the Come See Me Festival offers over a week of family fun throughout Rock Hill.
