Spartanburg Spring Fling

Friday, April 28, 2023 – Sunday, April 20, 2023
Friday 5 to 10 pm | Saturday 11 am to 9 pm | Sunday 12 pm to 6 pm
This free event has tons to see and do! Imagine four festival stages for live music and child-friendly acts, vendors, Family Fun Zone with children’s activities, and more. There is so much to see; it takes three days! We enjoy this festival every year. I suggest strollers, snacks, and bottled water for children. Trying to see and do everything can make the little ones tired and hungry.

Artisphere: Arts. Culture. Life.

2023: Friday, May 12th (12-8:30) | Saturday, May 13th (9-8:30) | Sunday, May 14th (10-6:30)
Probably the most anticipated spring festival in Greenville, Artisphere lives up to its reputation as one of the very best events in the Southeast. But it’s awesome for kids too! They have an entire area aptly called Kidsphere full of kid-friendly activities, building, and STEM-related and hands-on exhibits. There are also several performing artists that are exciting to watch for all ages.

This free three-day festival has something for everyone. There are artisan vendors, children’s activities, food, and music. You might be surprised at what catches your children’s eye and sparks their interest! We made a new friend in the artisans that work with The Heirloom Companies. My son was captivated by the welding that was being done, and the artist Jared was thrilled to see a young child take interest in something that most children don’t show interest in. We left with a memento and a new friend.
