Good Hope Picnic

Good Hope Picnic Good Hope Picnic is the oldest African American event in the community of Lone Star, SC, founded in August 1915, celebrating the end of planting season.

Good Hope Picnic, is the oldest African American celebration in the Lonestar Star Community held every 2nd Friday in August founded in 1915, a celebration of the end of the planting season and is held every year on the second Friday of August. Founders Thomas Lemon, Jerry Bodrick and Frank Bodrick Sr. wanted to provide local black farmers with a marketing outlet for their crops. Over the years, the picnic evolved into a fundraising and social occasion as well as a time to honor outstanding community members for their contributions to the area. Often compared to a huge reunion by organizers, the event draws folks from throughout South Carolina and even from other states. In 2010, the Good Hope Foundation dedicated a new permanent shelter for the picnic grounds funded by U.S. Sixth District Congressman Jim Clyburn and Tri-County Electric Cooperative. A cornerstone honoring the late Timothy "Tim" Fowler, who served on the Good Hope Foundation, was placed at the site in 2011.
