The 2018 Lowcountry Fair is the only place to watch Tacky Horse Races this year! The headline event boasts a fun, family-friendly atmosphere and is the perfect opportunity to watch racehorses and their riders glide through obstacle courses. At the end of the day, a “Grand Champion” will be crowned. Be sure to stick around, because you and your family will also have the chance to meet and interact with the horses!

2. Living History

Over 500 years of history will be displayed in the plantation’s 50-acre field! Reenactors will show what family life, living conditions, and times of war were really like during their designated time periods. You’ll be able to take a step back in time and experience eras such as 16th-century colonial times, the American Revolution, and the Civil War/Reconstruction period. The reenactors will also be mingling with spectators to share stories of life gone by, fire their weapons, and engage visitors during fun and educational activities.
