The 2023 South Carolina Paw Paw Festival

Posted on by SCNPS Website Team

Sponsored by Blue Oak Horticulture, the Blue Oak Pawpaw Festival honors America’s largest native fruit during its peak harvest season in Upstate SC. Come taste the fruit, browse the plants, visit the greenhouse, talk natives with representatives from the SCNPS and Southern Garden Solutions, shop arts and crafts from local artisans, listen to live music from the Well Drinkers, join June Ellen Bradley for an herbal medicinal plant walk, and much more! There will also be several food and drink vendors on site, and Carolina Baeurnhaus will be brewing up a special pawpaw beer just for the festival — we can’t wait to try it!

Blue Oak’s nursery will be open for plant sales, including native plants, from 3:00-6:00pm during the festival, including both local ecotype and selected varieties of Pawpaws. They will also have a limited selection of grafted Pawpaw trees for sale.
