It started out as modest arts and crafts sale held in Seven Oaks Park, during which the women also sold Okra. By 1978, it had grown into a full-fledged festival.

Several parks green the Irmo area, the largest being Harbison State Park.  Harbison is a planned community with extensive recreational facilities, and over seven miles of wide paved trails wind throughout the neighborhoods.Irmo which is located in the “northwest region” of Columbia is one of the fastest growing residential areas of town.  The northwest has been a hotbed of new housing developments in recent years.  New upscale communities are being built in this beautiful and largely rural part of Greater Columbia.
