Experience a menagerie of exquisite flavors at Lake Carolina’s popular autumn event. The 13th Annual Wine & Food Festival, running from 2-5PM on Saturday, Oct. 22, is the award-winning community’s biggest fundraiser of the year. It features samplings of wine and cuisine from across the globe, along with entertainment and the opportunity to give back to the greater Columbia area.

With donations benefitting Children’s Charities of the Midlands, Lake Carolina’s nonprofit program which aids local organizations such as Abundant Life Equipment Lending Library and Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, this event is one you won't want to miss.

This year’s festival includes wines from Sam’s Fine Wine & Spirits, food pairings from Spotted Salamander, Trader Joe’s and The Crescent Olive, and delicious snack samplings from Bricktown Bistro and Raw Bar. In addition, live music from Freeway Music will accompany a gorgeous outdoor view of the community’s sandy shore.

Named ‘Community of the Year’ for a decade, Lake Carolina is a blossoming master-planned community with plenty to offer its residents. In addition to over 30 miles of biking trails, an onsite YMCA and a scenic freshwater lake, the development is 1,850 acres of unique living. Check out these seven fun facts you may not have known:

1) It houses a number of excellent Richland District Two schools.
Families living in Lake Carolina don’t have to travel far to experience a quality education system. Lake Carolina Elementary has two campuses located on the development (preschool through second grade in ‘Lower’ and third through fifth grade in ‘Upper’). Students from the community and from the greater Columbia area attend this acclaimed school. The development also houses Kelly Mill Middle School and an early learning center. 

2) There are two community pools located on-site. 
Splash into warmer months with quick access to a refreshing pool. Whether you’re wanting to cool down, swim a few laps, read poolside or keep the kids busy, Lake Carolina offers two versions of this recreational amenity! 

3) Over 20 annual events occur on Lake Carolina property.
Whether it’s taste-testing delicious wines, browsing a gigantic, community-wide yard sale, braving a polar plunge, or accompanying the little ones to story-time, Lake Carolina has an event for that. With over 20 annual events on the social calendar, residents (and those outside the community) can enjoy awesome opportunities all-year-round. Plus, a number of these events donate proceeds to the Children's Charity of the Midlands which aids local youth.

4) It’s home to a bustling Town Center.
A quaint hub for local businesses lies at the heart of Lake Carolina. From an ice creamery to a neighborhood-favorite pub to a dance studio to a farmers market, the Town Center brings together locals for fun, dining and shopping. This onsite feature continues to help Lake Carolina’s unique lifestyle thrive! 

5) The Village of Sandhill is just 10 minutes away.
While there’s plenty to do within the community, more fun and entertainment is just minutes away. A quick 10-minute drive brings you to the Village of Sandhill, a luxury lifestyle center with tons of dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities. It’s the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon!

6) It’s located near the Fort Jackson and Shaw military bases.
Just 20 minutes from Fort Jackson and Shaw Air Force base, Lake Carolina has become a proud home to many military families. Looking to learn about military events or how you can connect with other military families both active and retired at Lake Carolina? Email

7) Two new neighborhoods are in the works! 
Essex Homes, Columbia’s premier homebuilder, has partnered with Lake Carolina since 2000. With many homes in the community already constructed by this quality builder, Lake Carolina is currently developing two more neighborhoods that will encompass a variety of beautiful Essex Homes.
