Belton's annual Standpipe Heritage and Arts Festival will celebrate its 28th year of entertaining activities.  The star on Belton's most famous landmark, the Standpipe, overlooks a beautiful city which reflects a Belton reminiscent of times past but also a true southern city of the future.  The 2014 Standpipe Heritage & Arts Festival will feature many events before and after the main event held on October 4, 2014 from 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM.  The Standpipe Festival welcomes visitors to our downtown and also gives guests the opportunity to explore our rich history in the Railroad, Tennis, Music and the Arts.  This festival is sponsored in part by the City of Belton Hospitality Fund, Anderson County, Senator Billy O'Dell, Representative Mike Gambrell, SC Arts Commission, and Belton Metal Corp.
