Welcome to the Come-See-Me Festival!

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 20-29 and experience our beautiful gardens, friendly folks, and all the fun the festival has to offer.

Our 2017 logo features both festival frog mascots, Glen and Glenda, in a custom design based on the drawings of renowned illustrator Vernon Grant. The logo unveiling is a special element of the festival each year. You’ll soon see the 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!
