Christmas In Cayce
Christmas in Cayce is one of the most cherished events by our residents and visitors alike. While this is the City’s favorite event to plan and host; we are ever conscious of the need to keep our citizens, visitors and staff safe during the pandemic. We want to continue to be a source of joy for our community so we have planned a modified Christmas in Cayce event that will be safe for all to attend.
We have combined the Carols Along the Riverwalk, the Cayce Historical Museum’s Christmas Open House and the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony into a Drive Thru event at City Hall. Visitors can take a ride through Cayce City Hall and enjoy the magic of thousands of twinkling lights, Carolers singing music of the season and the Woman’s Club of Cayce giving pre-packaged holiday treats to each car. The Museum’s front porch and grounds will be decorated with trees and crafts from the 18th century to present. Docents in historical and festive attire will hand out holiday candy and will greet visitors from the Museum’s front porch, which will be decorated with lighted Christmas trees and other festive displays.
Santa is joining us as well! He will be sitting atop the City’s first ever fire truck, a 1937 Rio. One of his elves will be with him giving out treats to the kids. In addition, the Woman’s Club is collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items as part of the 18th Annual Cayce Cares project, which benefits God’s Helping Hands and the Scooter Scott Project.
We look forward to seeing you at this special holiday event!
Cayce Plant Exchange
The City of Cayce Beautification Board host a Spring and Fall Plant Exchange each year. Everyone is invited to bring seeds, bulbs, clippings/cuttings, potted house plants, shrubs, and even trees. You do not have to bring a plant to participate. A master gardener will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Rain or shine, these events will run until all plants have a new home. These events are child and pet friendly and refreshments will be provided.
The City of Cayce is excited to announce a series of virtual history tours at the 12,000 Year History Park located just off Interstates 77 and 26. Moderated by Mr. John Jameson, a Heritage Consultant for the 12,000 Year History Park, the history tours cover everything from the history of Native American inhabitants to life in our region during the Civil War! Come learn about the rich history of our area for over 120 centuries!
Cayce Serves Tennis Tournament
Out of respect for our sponsors, safety of our volunteers and players, as well as uncertainty of scheduling, the Cayce Public Safety Foundation has determined it is in the best interest to cancel the 2020 Cayce Serves Tennis Tournament. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021!
Tartan Day South
With a heavy heart, we announce the cancellation of Tartan Day South in 2020 due to concerns about COVID-19. All of the events from April 2nd through the 5th are cancelled. We are following the recommendations of the Governor’s Office and the CDC. This is a cancellation not a postponement. Most of our vendors and athletes work the highland schedule around the Southeast. Rescheduling this size event would be very difficult.
As a blessing, Tartan Day South has grown into a regional event. We had patrons from 35 states visit TDS in 2019. With that in mind and in cooperation with community and municipal leaders, we made this very difficult decision. We know this decision has far reaching effects, from our vendors to our cities businesses that also benefit from the influx of visitors. In these very uncertain times, this was the only decision we could make.
TARTAN DAY SOUTH WILL RETURN!!! MARCH 25 – 28, 2021
