If you have never feasted on southern delicacy and love a festive atmosphere, this is the place to be!
The Loris Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Loris Bog-Off Festival each year on the third Saturday in October in downtown Loris. With attendance up to 35,000, the event is a day packed with entertainment, vendors, food, and fun for all ages. The Loris Bog-Off Festival is sponsored by local businesses and anticipated by residents from both Carolinas!
Chicken bog generally consists of chicken, rice, sausage, and spices of your choice, though over the years, there have been many variations of this basic recipe. If you choose not to create your pot of chicken bog, the Chefs are always on-site to provide plates of the southern cuisine at a reasonable price. After you have dined on the Jamestown Chefs chicken bog, enjoy a funnel cake or homemade ice cream from one of the many food vendors.
The cooking contest is still considered the day's main focus but is accompanied by over 200 vendors, two entertainment stages, and a giant children’s area. The stage performances include local dance schools, school choruses, and local bands.
The festival ends with a fireworks extravaganza and a free concert from a national act! Please make plans to join us for this great festival; you will not be disappointed.
