37th Annual Striped Bass Festival in Clarendon County

In its 37th year, the Clarendon County Striped Bass Festival held annually in Manning, SC, is a celebration of spring, a tribute to the beauty of the county, and a special salute to the Striped Bass which put the Santee Cooper Lakes on the map, i.e. Lakes Marion and Moultrie.
Each April in Clarendon County, South Carolina, 'Mother Nature' puts on a show that's hard to beat. Azalea, wisteria, iris, tulips, geranium, roses, gladiola and more are in full bloom, making Clarendon County a visual treasure.

The Striped Bass Festival complements the natural beauty of our area with a fishing tournament, dances, a parade, boating events and a host of other activities. The festival weekend kicks off on Friday, April 22, 2016, with a Street Dance.

The festival's "Super Saturday" will begin with a "Home Town" parade at 10:00 a.m. The parade will travel down Brooks Street and Boyce Street. After the parade, enjoy the craft and food provided by vendors and civic organizations from around the county.

The Santee Cooper Open Team 'Fishing Tournament' on Saturday, April 23, 2016 will start at 6:30 am at the John C. Land Landing and the weigh-in starts at 4:00 pm.

Finally, the City of Manning Fire Department will have their doors open for everyone to view the artwork submitted into the Striped Bass Festival Student Art Show. The masterpieces on display are from children in all schools in Clarendon County.
