Indie Grits Film Festival
April 11 - 20, 2014
Indie Grits was born in 2007, charging blindly and passionately onto the scene, with a do-it-yourself attitude. Propelled by a far-flung artistic vision, festival organizers sought to break down the walls intimidating Southern media makers by creating exhibition opportunities for work often overlooked elsewhere. The spirit of Indie Grits comes from the heart of its host, the Nickelodeon Theatre. The Nick serves as the festival’s anchor in historic downtown Columbia. More than a film festival full of youthful audacity, Indie Grits, now in its eighth year, is a showcase for the very best of the city’s culinary, theatrical, art and music talent. Call 803-254-8324 for more information.

Quarry Crusher Run
April 26, 2014
Can you rock the Quarry? The Quarry Crusher Run is the only race of its kind in the southeast. This once-in-a-lifetime look inside a magnificent landscape that is prohibited to the general public will leave a lasting memory in addition to the aching of your muscles and bones. The approximately 3.72-mile route starts and finishes near the Olympia-Granby Mills in the Olympia Village, but it grows each year as the quarry gets deeper. Once in the quarry, the route winds down a 10% grade through granite cliffs to the quarry floor. The approximately 400-foot ascent from the quarry floor to the finish marks the grueling event as Columbia’s most challenging foot race. Call 803-269-0001 for more information.
