Welcome to the Sparkleberry Country Fair!

If you want to see the way it was done in the old days, then come to the Sparkleberry Country Fair!  The Fair is located in Northeast Columbia at the Clemson University Sandhill Research and Education Center (900 Clemson Road, Columbia, SC) on the corner of Clemson and Two Notch Road.

The cost is only $5 a car load and all proceeds go to local schools in the form of scholarships and grants.  The Sparkleberry Country Fair is the only fair in the state where you can have lots of fun, get an education, give to education and have hands-on demonstrations from the past!  Where else can you have that much fun while helping our students? Only at the Sparkleberry Country Fair!
