About the First Day Festival
LOGO - FDF - FINAL - small 1.3_thumb.jpg
Every August, Charleston welcomes thousands of students and their families to the First Day Festival.  At the Festival, students and their families receive school supplies, discover student support services, learn about healthy snacks, and enjoy Festival entertainment such as SC Aquarium tours and boat rides at no cost to attendees.  The Festival is made possible through contributions from individuals and businesses alike.  The First Day Festival is a wonderful way to unite the community around an important cause.    

The Festival this year will be held on Sunday, August 12, 1:00-4:00 PM at Liberty Square and the SC Aquarium, and Gadsdenboro Park.  We look forward to a wonderful celebration of Education and hope you can join us!
