Whether you're driving in for the day or staying for the weekend, we can't wait for you to visit Florence and our Annual South Carolina Pecan Music & Food Festival! The festival is located in Downtown Florence, South Carolina and is easily accessible by car from the Florence Regional Airport, I-95, or I-20.
If you're visiting for just the day, take the stress out of parking by using one of our free Park & Ride locations sponsored by WBTW News 13. Just park your car at one of three locations near the festival and then hop on the Park & Ride bus. The bus service runs continually during the festival and the four parking locations are available at:
- Hallmark Plaza at 953 South Irby Street
- Florence Regional Airport at 2100 Terminal Drive
- Florence Mall at 1945 West Palmetto Street (parking lot near Piggly Wiggly)
You can also use the Attractions and Entertainment sections in the main menu above to help plan what areas and performers you want to make sure you don't miss. If you'll be attending with children, check out our guide below for our suggestions for a kid-friendly day at the festival.
If you're traveling from further away or just want to enjoy a weekend in Florence, read through our suggested itinerary for a weekend at the festival and in Downtown Florence below. We highly recommend a stay at either Hotel Florence or the Hyatt Place Florence/Downtown to put you just steps away from the festival as well as dozens of local dining and retail options. Information about these two properties can be found to the right.
If you are in need of other accommodations, Florence has just under 40 hotel and motel options; many located right off the exits for 1-20 and 1-95. You can view the full accommodations list, as well as lists of where to eat and what to do in Florence County at the Florence Convention and Visitors Bureau website.
