Loaded with frogs, music, and fun, the festival brings together friends, neighbors, and festival-lovers from all over the United States and the world. Talk of the Town Carolinas host Patti Mercer interviewed the 2018 Come See Me Chair Chet Tucker to give you the inside scoop on this year’s festival
Come-See-Me debuted spring of 1962 as a community project created by C.H. “Icky” Albright, former Rock Hill Mayor and State Senator to encourage tourists, relatives and friends to visit Rock Hill during its most beautiful season. One of the festival co-creators was Rock Hill resident, Vernon Grant, nationally acclaimed illustrator and creator of Kellogg’s(r) celebrated gnomes, “Snap, Crackle and Pop(r).” Grant created the Festival’s mascot, “Glen the Frog”(r), of which Grant designed more than 30 different styles. Each year the festival chair selects a new logo and updates its design and colors.
The Come-See-Me festival has won many awards including the SC event of the Year. The festival is also considered the largest, all-volunteer festival in South Carolina. The Come-See-Me Festival kicks off with a parade, offers a Beach Bash, weekend of Gourmet Gardens, and various events throughout the week. For kids, events include a Teddy Bear Tea Party and the Mayor’s Frog Jump. Music lovers may enjoy several venues, from weekday lunch concerts in the gardens, to Moonlight Jazz, to a giant Tailgate Party featuring rock and country bands and ending with a fabulous fireworks display. There’s an “app” that! The Come See ME Festival has its own Apple or Android-based app with festival schedules, maps, event weather status and more.
