Festivals are fun for everyone, but great sponsors make it possible.
The sponsors of the Johnston, S.C., Peach Blossom Festival, which will be held May 6, 2017, make it possible to keep the Festival free or low-cost for patrons. In addition, it helps raise additional money that can be used to reinvest in the Johnston area.
The Johnston Peach Blossom Festival Corporate Sponsors are Edgefield County Hospital, First Citizens Bank, IGA, J.W. Yonce and Sons, NAPA of Johnston/Edgefield, SCE&G, Northland Communications, and National Wild Turkey Federation.
This year’s Johnston Peach Blossom Festival Entertainment Sponsors are Dr. Hugh Morgan Family Practice, Jim Satcher Motors, and Titan Farms.
Last year, thousands of patrons descended on Johnston to enjoy the day set aside to honor the peach industry, which has been so important in the development of the area. Each year, the Town goes all out with the Festival to remind citizens about the peach industry and to open its arms to visitors.
