The heart of the festival

It has grown into one of the most anticipated festivals in the Upstate, and this year’s 35th anniversary event promises to be the best.

The Pelham Medical Center Greer Family Fest spans two days and includes live music, a KidsZone, a Creation Station with a M*A*S*H tent, and more than 150 vendors.

At the heart of it all are Pelham Medical Center’s education booths. Get free skin cancer and blood pressure screenings, meet an emergency doctor, try out a few physical fitness training activities and much more.
