Press Release

UPDATE AS OF MAY 27, 2020:

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 iMAGINE Upstate STEAM Festival, most recently postponed to September 12th, 2020.

After consulting with our partners and other community organizers, our team has decided that it’s not in the best interest of our community to hold a large festival gathering this year. While providing an amazing festival experience is our goal, our current priority is the safety and well-being of everyone in our community.

But, please stay tuned!  Our team is busy planning innovative ways of engaging our Upstate community in meaningful experiences that promote a culture of lifelong learning and career readiness in STEAM.  

Stay safe and be well. And, as we like to say in our organization, “Spread joy, not germs.”



(GREENVILLE SC) iMAGINE Upstate STEAM Festival fueled by ScanSource will postpone its event from April 4, 2020 to September 12, 2020. The decision was made in response to the growing number of travel restrictions aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus, which directly impacts participation from its festival partners.

“The postponement of iMAGINE Upstate was a difficult decision made in conjunction with City of Greenville officials,” said Hannah Halusker, Director of iMAGINE Upstate & Upstate SC STEM Collaborative. “iMAGINE Upstate strives to provide the best festival experience for attendees, and this is no longer possible without the participation of our national partners.”

iMAGINE Upstate STEAM Festival brings over 75 interactive exhibits and shows emphasizing science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) to downtown Greenville. Now in its 6th year, the free festival engages pre-K through 12th grade students in hands-on learning experiences facilitated by local corporations, schools and nonprofit organizations.
