Since 2017, the McKissick Museum of the University of South Carolina has partnered with the South Carolina State Fair (SCSF), the Eastern Cherokee, Southern Iroquois and United Tribes of SC (ECSUIT), and the Wassamasaw Tribe of Varnertown Indians to host FOLKFabulous—a twelve-day celebration of Southern folklife. The program, which has been supported by an NEH Creating Humanities Communities grant, offers state fair attendees the opportunity to learn from traditional artists and engage in interactive, community-oriented activities. The funding has provided financial support to tradition bearers, most from South Carolina, while building the McKissick Museum’s capacity and reach.
