Central Railroad Festival

The Central Railroad Festival pulls into historic downtown Central Saturday, each April with music, great food and festivities for all ages. The Railroad Festival celebrates the rich heritage of Central, so named because the town is situated at the “central” point of the railroad line between Atlanta and Charlotte. The festival begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m., featuring entertainment, food, music and arts and crafts vendors. There will be free entertainment for all ages, including oldies, rock, jazz and bluegrass. On the Kids Stage will be clogging, a Karate demonstration and Buffalo Barfield Kids Show. Also open for free tours will be the Central Railway Museum, which features a large HO-scale model railroad layout complete with cities, towns and features found in the region more than a half century ago. The museum also houses a Heritage Room, featuring classic model trains popular in the mid – 20th Century. Also, there will be a tour of the Central red caboose. Sponsored by the Central Area Business Council and the Clemson Area Chamber of Commerce. Supported by the Town of Central and the Central Railway Museum.
