Events & Activities

 

The Ackerman Legacy Foundation is pleased to announce that the annual Inspire! Festival is coming your way March 25 – April 3, 2022. Our inaugural event was held in the Spring of 2019 and was so well received we are excited to be able to bring this celebration of life and giving to the Sumter community again this year.

We are delighted with our lineup of events this year as they are more varied than, and equally as exciting as, those held last year!
