iMAGINE Upstate Festival


"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."
- Albert Einstein

More than a festival, iMAGINE Upstate is an annual celebration and showcase around STEAM, innovation, creative and entrepreneurial activity in the Upstate. We are thrilled to announce that the fifth annual program and community STEAM festival will be held over at 10-day period in early April 2019!

The iMAGINE Upstate Program

Our vision is to be a leader in Upstate workforce development by bringing together industry partners, academic institutions, non-profit organizations and the community. Together we can build a PreK-12 workforce pipeline and generate interest in high-skill industries.
From our inaugural event in 2015 that first brought STEAM to the streets of downtown Greenville to the tremendous growth in public awareness, attendance and participation that we achieved in 2016, 2017 and 2018. Together we will continue to build upon our success in 2018 by expanding and deepening our impact on students from PreK-12 through interactive learning experiences that expose students to potential STEAM careers. The festival has been a major success because of the tremendous support of the community and our education and industry partners.
