Saturday at the Okra Strut Festival

Saturday, September 30th

Saturday at the Strut starts bright and early with our Annual Irmo Okra Strut Parade starting at 9am. We take over a major road in our town and put on the biggest and longest running parade in the state of South Carolina. So grab a seat and plan to be on St Andrews Road, between Crossroads Intermediate and Irmo Elementary Schools before 9!

Then right after the parade the fun will start over at the park. From 10am until 4pm, we have a full day of fun performers on the main stage.

Plan the Perfect Date Night!

Saturday night at the Strut is a great evening for a beautiful date outside under the canopy. With one of the largest collections of food trucks and vendors in the area you can have a nice dinner of crab legs or a turkey leg with a side of fried okra! Then you can grab a tasty dessert to feed that sweet tooth or head over to the beer tent for a fresh poured local beer. The Saturday night musical acts begin around 6pm complete with a laser light show.

We hope you join us for the 49th Annual Irmo Okra Strut. It is always a fun time and so jammed packed with stuff to do. Keep checking back for more as we finish planning this year!
