A Festival Full of Fun!

For more than 50 years, the Come-See-Me Festival has served as Rock Hill’s annual salute to spring. With nearly 80 events and activities, there’s something for everyone. Join us April 12-21, 2018 and experience our beautiful gardens, friendly folks, and all the fun the festival has to offer.

Our 2018 logo features a classic rendition of the festival’s beloved mascot, Glen the Frog. This drawing of Glen was last incorporated in the festival logo in 1990. The black background pays homage to many of the works by Glen’s creator, renowned illustrator Vernon Grant. The logo unveiling of each year’s custom design is always one of the most highly anticipated events in Rock Hill. You’ll soon see this year’s logo on many festival promotions around the city. It’s a sure sign that spring is on the way and the Come-See-Me Festival is just around the corner. Join us for all the excitement this April!
