Cayce Serves Tennis Tournament

Out of respect for our sponsors, safety of our volunteers and players, as well as uncertainty of scheduling, the Cayce Public Safety Foundation has determined it is in the best interest to cancel the 2020 Cayce Serves Tennis Tournament. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021!

Tartan Day South

With a heavy heart, we announce the cancellation of Tartan Day South in 2021 due to concerns about COVID-19. All of the events are cancelled. This is a cancellation not a postponement. Most of our vendors and athletes work the highland schedule around the Southeast. Rescheduling this size event would be very difficult.

As a blessing, Tartan Day South has grown into a regional event. We had patrons from 35 states visit TDS in 2019. With that in mind and in cooperation with community and municipal leaders, we made this very difficult decision. We know this decision has far reaching effects, from our vendors to our cities businesses that also benefit from the influx of visitors. In these very uncertain times, this was the only decision we could make.
