The Issaqueena Festival is held the third Saturday in May each year in downtown Six Mile, SC. Food, arts, and crafts vendors line Main Street, with free entertainment for both adults and children. There is plenty of shade and room under tents to sit and enjoy the entertainment.
The area now known as Six Mile once belonged to the Cherokee Nation. A popular legend says that Six Mile was named by the Indian maiden, Issaqueena, who rode her horse on a journey of ninety-six miles to warn an English trader named Francis Allen of a coming Cherokee attack on his fort.
