River Rocks Music Festival 2018

On Saturday, April 14, from noon to 8pm, Congaree Riverkeeper is hosting its River Rocks Music Festival at the riverfront lot (adjacent Founder’s Park: University of South Carolina’s baseball stadium). Live music will be provided by great local bands, such as: Dumpstaphunk, Stop Light Observations, The Mobros, The Broadcast and Dead Swell (a local favorite). A fun-filled event for the entire family, other festival highlights include educational corners, artisan stations, arts and crafts and much more. Food will be provided by local food trucks and Sweetwater is sponsoring and serving festival libations. 

The River Rocks Music Festival serves two purposes: (1) to get local residents physically down to the Congaree River to appreciate it's importance and need to be protected; and (2) to raise money for the Congaree Riverkeeper, a 501c3 nonprofit, working to protect and improve water quality, wildlife habitat, and recreation on the Congaree, Lower Saluda, and Lower Broad Rivers through advocacy, education, and enforcement of environmental laws.

Cost: $12, advance tickets; $15, day of event. Location: Riverfront lot at Founders Park, 555 Williams St., Columbia. For more information, visit or
