2020 eSTEAM Sumter Festival Cancelled
Out of an abundance of caution for the public safety of our children, community and businesses, the eSTEAM Sumter Festival originally slated for October 3, 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID 19 world-wide pandemic. In what would have been the festival’s 3rd year, eSTEAM Sumter is designed to highlight the many advances and opportunities that exist in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. Organizers were looking to draw a crowd of more than 7,500 students, parents and organizations. The festival is held in celebration of National Manufacturing Day which is the first Friday in October annually. Since its inception in 2018, the event has drawn thousands of attendees from Sumter and surrounding counties. Although a full festival is not scheduled, TheLINK Alliance and eSTEAM Sumter will continue to support STEAM initiatives and promote contests through its social media platforms.
