NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - North Augusta’s Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee is coming back after a two-year hiatus.

The festival will include Grammy nominee, country singer Joe Nichols, South Carolina native Cody Webb and many more.

“There will be a ton of activities between music, crafts, and games. It’ll be awesome,” said North Augusta Mayor Briton Williams.

It’s going to be on Oct. 29. The festival kicks off at 10 a.m. and will go into the evening.

Organizers say this year is going to be bigger than ever. One of the ways they’re doing that is by holding a pre-show Wednesday night.

You can expect a great time with great music at the amphitheater. Organizers wanted to get people excited, and they’re doing just that.

Members of the community and small businesses are thrilled to gather, listen to some good music, and celebrate the fall season.

“I think it’s really cool because we get to be able to talk with people and bring them in and just be able to empower them and show them around,” said Swank Company Retail Store Sayla Owen.

They’re expecting up to 15 to 20,000 people.

Organizers decided to hold pre-jubilee events leading up to the big show.

North Augusta Parks and Rec Rick Meyer said: “Most people can’t believe that everything about the Jack-O-Lantern Jubilee is free. You know, the concerts, every concert is free, including Joe Nichols on Saturday night.”

Meyer says if you’re a country music fan in North Augusta, you’ve got to check out Wednesday’s concert and the upcoming events on Thursday and Friday.
