Yonder Field has scheduled a new first official festival for Aug. 21, a solar eclipse viewing party that will include a concert headlined by Uncle Kracker.
The 200-acre outdoor event space is located off Log Cabin Road near Homestead Road, 10 miles north of Interstate 26 and the I-95 interchange, and halfway between Columbia and Charleston. It also within a few hours of Charlotte, Greenville and Savannah.
The Solar Eclipse Festival will also include music from Corey Smith and Edwin McCain, along with an inflatables race and a movie. The three-day event allows for guests to camp overnight, beginning at 4 p.m. Aug. 20 and running through 10 a.m. Aug. 22.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for families to make lifetime memories together,” says Stacie Darr White, president and general manager of Yonder Field. “The last time a total solar eclipse took place in the United States was 38 years ago, and we are incredibly fortunate that Yonder Field is located in the path of totality for South Carolina.”
The event comes a month after Yonder Field was forced to postpone its first event as a result of delays that White says were beyond the group’s control.
Tickets for the event begin at $25 for general admission lawn tickets. Two-day car camping passes are $75 and RV camping passes are $150.
