Firefly Distillery, South Carolina’s oldest working distillery, announced the return of its annual Fourth at Firefly Independence Day event on Saturday, July 4th from noon to 7 pm. Featuring live music performances, the celebration will be the first at the distillery’s new Park Circle location at 4201 Spruill Avenue. The event will span the property’s entire 4-acre field, front porch, and 25,000 square foot distillery.
“We’re excited to celebrate the Fourth at Firefly at our new location in Park Circle and to maintain the tradition of this fun annual event,” Scott Newitt, Firefly co-founder, said. “We’re limiting the number of tickets available to provide plenty of room for attendees to spread out and give guests a comfortable experience for their families to enjoy the local food, drinks and live music.”
The live music lineup will be headlined by The Black Diamond Band with performances by Haley Mae Campbell and Hans Wenzel and the Eighty Sixers starting at 1 pm. The family and dog friendly event will have a limited capacity and guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance by visiting https://www.fireflydistillery.com/news-events/fourth-at-firefly.
Tastings of Firefly Spirits will be available throughout the day at both the indoor and outdoor tasting bars for guests to sample spirits, as well as drinks from the outdoor cocktail bar. Guests are encouraged to book their tasting time ahead of the event to secure a spot.
The event will also feature a beer truck with local brews, savory food trucks including Braised in the South and Jonny Poppers and dessert trucks Holy Roly and Sweet Lulus. Each attendee will receive a ticket to participate in the hourly raffle for Firefly Spirits prize packs including grills, rocking chairs, golf bags and more.
Picnic tables will be tented for shade on the Front Porch and The Field will be open for lawn games and guests to spread out with blankets and chairs. Guests can purchase merchandise or Firefly’s-own hand sanitizer from the expansive indoor gift shop.
