The Loris Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Loris Bog-Off Festival each year on the third Saturday in October in downtown Loris. The event is a day packed with entertainment, vendors, food, and fun for all ages. The festival began in 1980 as a chicken bog cooking contest and has evolved into the huge event it is today. Chicken bog generally consists of chicken, rice, sausage and spices of your choice; though over the years there have been many variations of this basic recipe.
The Loris Bog-Off Festival is sponsored by local businesses and anticipated by residents from both of the Carolinas. If you have never feasted on the southern delicacy and love a festive atmosphere this is the place to be on the third Saturday in October with the 35,000 others that won’t miss the event. Make plans to join us for this great festival; you will not be disappointed.
