Cultural Events
Palmetto Theater
Hampton County's cultural activities are centered around the Palmetto Theater in Hampton. The theater, which seats 221, is the setting for plays, concerts, arts shows, a "Kids Kulture Kamp" and special events throughout the year.

The theater originally opened in 1946 and became one of Hampton's social centers. But years later, the theater fell into disrepair and closed. However, those who appreciate the arts didn't forget the theater and found a way to revive it. The Hampton County Arts Council was formed and bought the theater.

Following extensive renovation the theater reopened in 1993 to a sell-out crowd and has been providing Hampton County residents with arts and entertainment opportunities ever since.
