"Home of the Hell Hole Swamp Festival"

Hell Hole Swamp Festival was founded in 1971 by Cecil Guerry, a local townsman.  He had a vision of creating a community festival in which people could come together to socialize and enjoy a weekend full of excitement. With the assistance of close friends and family, his vision came to fruition. 

 

The Hell Hole Swamp Festival takes place during the first full weekend in May.  The Town of Jamestown and Hell Hole Inc have welcomed visitors from near and far with their southern hospitably to enjoy the Hell Hole Swamp Festival's famous beauty pageants, children’s tobacco spitting contest, and many other events and activities.  One unique event of the festival is the Hell Hole Gator Trot 10k race. It began in 1976 and is one of the oldest road races in South Carolina.

 

The eclectic annual festival is organized by a group of all volunteer citizens that comprise Hell Hole, Inc.

Swirl

In 1971 we started out has one man’s vision of community fellowship with an annual parade.  Hell Hole Inc has taken that vision and expanded on it. We currently host four community events throughout the year as well as sponsor several beautification projects in Jamestown.

Two of the events we host are the Oyster Roast and the Hell Hole Swamp Festival.  Both are fundraiser events that allow us to raise the funds we need to host our other two events - Back to School Bash and our Halloween Munster Mash - for free to those who attend.
