Unveiling the Ultimate 2023 Irmo Okra Strut Extravaganza – Real Estate, Rockin' Music, and Okra Galore!

2023 Irmo Okra Strut: Where Okra Gets Groovy and Real Estate Gets Real!


Ladies and gentlemen, grab your magnifying glasses and join us as we unveil the not-so-well-kept secret of Irmo, South Carolina - the annual "Okra Strut!" It's a festival that proves once and for all that okra can strut its stuff, and real estate can get real exciting. Nestled in the heart of South Carolina, Irmo transforms into a vibrant hub of culture, history, and, yes, the vegetable wonder okra. So let’s get to the deets including who, what, when, where, why, and… well, us at J King Real Estate! 


The Quick Facts:

  • When: Friday, September 29th from 6:00-11:00 PM and Saturday, September 30th from 9:00 AM - 10:00 PM.
  • Where: Irmo Community Park, 7473 Church St., Irmo, SC 29063.
  • Cost: Entrance and concert performances are FREE! 
  • Additional charge for rides, amusements, and food/drink.


Wait, why is Okra strutting?

What do you get when you mix a local library fundraiser, a dash of arts and crafts, and a whole lotta okra? The Irmo Okra Strut! Born in 1973 as a humble library fundraiser, it has since become an extravaganza that celebrates Irmo's growth, its people, and the veggie that can strut its stuff like no other. Fear not, foodies, and beer enthusiasts; there's a treat (you know - beer & okra) for your taste buds that'll last until closing at 11:00 PM.


The music is a vibe:

Friday, September 29th

  • L.A. Maybe: These rockers are pioneering the New Wave of classic rock. They're like that old friend who's just familiar enough to love ‘em always, but unique enough to keep you guessing what they’re doing next. Catch them at 7:00 PM.


  • The Terence Young Music Project: A guitarist extraordinaire who's rubbed shoulders with legends like The Temptations, Patti Labelle, and Frankie Beverly and Maze. He has even played the National Anthem at NBA games. Catch him right after L.A. Maybe!


Saturday, September 30th

  • The Reggie Sullivan Band: Who knew an upright bass could rock your world? These variety/R&B maestros have been heating up South Carolina since 2012. This performance starts at 6:00PM, so grab your beer and your okra and lets rock!


  • The Spin Doctors: No, not the medical kind. These guys are the masters of blues-influenced rock, specializing in 90s hits. You might remember them from Columbia's Rosewood Crawfish Festival in 2018.


I have kids… what is in it for them?


The Parade:

No Okra Strut is complete without its signature parade. It's a spectacle featuring colorful floats, local businesses, community groups, and even the enigmatic Okra Man. Stake out your spot near the curb on St. Andrews Road between Crossroads Intermediate and Irmo Elementary School around 9:00 AM. 


RIDES! Let’s gooooo!

Kids can enjoy multiple rides at the Okra Strut. Hold onto your hats!


Kids Okra Eating Contest:

Who knew okra could be so competitive? Find out at the Community Stage on Saturday, September 30th at 1:00 PM.


Connecting with one of the few Real Estate agencies in Irmo:

As you soak in the festive atmosphere and become one with Irmo during the Okra Strut, you might start thinking, "Hey, should I move here?" If you have such musings, J King Real Estate, the local real estate wizards, will be right there in the parade (passing out foam footballs and candy), ready to answer your questions about properties, neighborhoods, and the perks of living in Irmo. It's your chance to connect with real estate pros who can help you plant roots in this welcoming community!



The 2023 Irmo Okra Strut is more than a festival; it's a celebration of community, culture, and the undeniable spirit of Irmo, South Carolina. From its modest beginnings to the grand event it is today, the Okra Strut continues to bring us together around okra! So, whether you're an Irmo old-timer or a fresh-faced newbie, the Okra Strut is your backstage pass to the local culture, top-notch entertainment, and, if you're inclined, a peek into the real estate treasures waiting to be discovered in this hospitable town.
