The Riverfest Arts and Crafts Festival is the historic cornerstone of the Service League's fundraising efforts. Now in its 33rd year, the festival has earned a notable reputation for its family-oriented approach and warm relationship with its vendors. Riverfest is a juried show, featuring original, creative, handmade work from artisans all over the region. Additionally, the event showcases incredible entertainment throughout the weekend - live music and dancing - as well as a fun-filled children's area where children of all ages can participate in a number of kid-friendly rides and activities.

Many of our Riverfest exhibitors and guests at the fair have asked how the funds raised at Riverfest are spent. Take a moment and see what the Service League is all about by exploring our website. The Service League of Cherokee County has been touching the lives of children in our county for more than 80 years. THANKS to you, our exhibitors and the many others who support our projects, we will continue to make major contributions to the needs of the children of Cherokee County.
