2020 Spring Plant and Flower Festivals Cancelled

The South Carolina Department of Agriculture has made the decision to postpone all events at SCDA facilities until at least May 10, 2020, to protect our South Carolina citizens and minimize opportunities to spread COVID-19 in our communities. This includes the Phillips Market Center, along with the State and Regional Farmers Markets. Events will be rescheduled or held virtually, as feasible.

Our decision follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Interim Guidance for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), issued March 15, 2020, which recommends that for the next eight weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. Events of any size should only be continued if they can be carried out with adherence to guidelines for protecting vulnerable populations, hand hygiene, and social distancing. When feasible, organizers could modify events to be virtual.

The Department’s first priority continues to be the health and wellbeing of the citizens of South Carolina, as well as the employees who work here at the Department.
