    We’re seeking volunteers to serve on the Camellia City Festival committee. The festival is scheduled for Saturday, October 23, 2021, at the Thomson-McDuffie Government Center.  We will be closing out the 150th anniversary of McDuffie County with a community celebration.  The Camellia City Festival is staffed by members of the Thomson-McDuffie Chamber of Commerce, its Board of Directors, and volunteers from the community. It will take a number of community minded individuals to make this festival a success, and there is a wide range of opportunities to participate. The Camellia City Festival was originally the Festival Off Main (Christmas festival).  We’ve decided to move our festival to October to avoid conflict with a great many other Christmas scheduled in December.  We are also making this festival as a celebration of McDuffie County’s history and agriculture with the prospect of attracting more vendors.

    The festival committee’s first meeting will be on Friday, March 5th at 10:00 a.m. via Zoom.  If you are interested in attending this meeting, email the Chamber office (mailto:debbie.jones@thomson-mcduffie.net), and you will receive the Zoom link.

    Volunteer opportunities fall into several different categories seen below. These are subject to change as we determine the new look for the festival.
