Blue Ridge Fest


Blue Ridge Fest

Blue Ridge Fest, a charity fundraiser of Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative, each spring brings hundreds of classic cars to the Upstate's largest classic car cruise-in, oldies music by top artists, food and non-alcoholic beverages, a chance to win large cash prizes, and a good time for thousands of fest-goers. Since its inception two decades ago, Blue Ridge Fest, through sponsors and ticket sales, has raised more than $2 million in net proceeds given to local charitable organizations.
