Sponsorship Opportunities:

The Edisto Blackwater Boogie aims to “Celebrate the Edisto.” Funds raised from the festival will support improvements to the Givhans Ferry State Park and future Edisto Blackwater Boogies.

Several different members of the community have already pledged their support of the event, but the more support we get, the better able we are to make improvements to Givhans Ferry State Park and fund even better future festivals. Consider supporting a cause which is not only good but will also provide fun and entertainment to hundreds of people.
