Downtown Newberry, SC
Newberry's downtown historic district is the centerpiece of our community, a hub for local trade, government, and culture. It's a true old-fashioned town center where neighbors meet for business and enjoyment, the community gathers for festivals and events, and a picturesque outdoor venue with dozens of shops and restaurants.
Stroll through our city streets and enjoy the heritage that has been carefully preserved in the beautiful historic buildings. Within the downtown district, you'll find entire blocks in which every building is on the National Registry of Historic Places. Special historic attractions include the Newberry Opera House, Newberry Arts Center, and the Newberry Museum (new location currently under construction at 1300 Friend Street, set to open spring 2019).
Shopping & Dining
You may also want to stop by one of our city's fine art or antique shops and take something unique home with you, or visit our many retail establishments to find that perfect gift from your visit. And don't forget... Newberry offers a wide range of dining options for the perfect break to your day of shopping.
Festivals & Annual Events
Visitors will especially enjoy visiting downtown Newberry during one of our many outdoor festivals, such as Pork in the Park, A Taste of Newberry, or Oktoberfest. Casual visitors won't want to miss some of the fun weekend activities and events that pop up throughout the year. Check our events calendar to see what's coming up!
