This festival is one of the largest College-sponsored in the nation.  It is an annual event for the entire family that has plenty of food, music, fun, art, and those hard-to-find merchandise items in the Shopping Village. The KIJIJI Children's Village will feature scientific experiments, virtual classrooms, educational enrichment, and dance lessons.  Other events include bounce houses outside for the children. 

There will be a special presentation from the Benedict College Harambee Festival Family to Dr. David H. Swinton in commemoration of twenty years of dedicated service to Benedict College.

Live stage performances are scheduled throughout the day to include the national award winning Benedict College Gospel Choir and a special appearance by the Harambee Festival Community Choir, and various other performances.  Free Admission.   Call (803) 705-4409 for additional information and to register as a merchandise or food vendor.
