Until 1964, the South Carolina State Fair was a ‘whites only’ event. As a result, the black community took part in the South Carolina Colored State Fair one week later. The ‘colored’ event was sponsored by the Colored State Fair Association.The segregated fair was in existence from 1908 to 1964, which marked the legal ban of segregation.
