RiverRead Festival


The first-ever RiverRead festival takes place on Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Conway’s Riverfront Park. Originating from Councilperson Barbara Blain Old’s desire to help Conway become known as the “City that Reads,” the program includes native South Carolina artist Jonathan Green and features his new book, a character parade for children of all ages, a poetry slam contest, a book exchange in partnership with the Horry County Literacy Council, book readings for children, readings local authors and more.

Admission to the festival is free. For more information and a schedule of events, visit the website here.
