It’s time again for the event columnist Roger Simon described as “one of those all-too-rare, feel-good evenings in politics,” and this year it’s bigger than ever. “Jim Clyburn’s World Famous Fish Fry” will be held on Friday, June 21st during the 2019 South Carolina Democratic Weekend in Columbia, S.C., and it will be a “can’t miss” stop for any candidate seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
Jim Clyburn began the fish fry nearly three decades ago as a thank you to his campaign workers and for folks who couldn’t afford to attend the South Carolina State Democratic Party dinner. This free event is known for tons of fried fish, the Electric Slide, and old-fashioned politicking. Presidential candidates will be welcomed by the host and given a brief moment to address the crowd.
This event is free and open to the public, however a digital RSVP is strongly encouraged.
Gates will open for guests at 7:00 PM at the Coble Plaza, behind EdVenture Children’s Museum, 211 Gervais St. Columbia, SC 29201.
