Home / Hartwell Lake Poker Run

The Hartwell Lake Poker Run benefiting Meals on Wheels will bring more than 200 boats to Hartwell Lake and Big Water Marina Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 6-7-8.


Entering its 10th year, the Hartwell Lake Poker Run kicks off the summer boating season in the area. Boaters from all over the Southeast will converge at Big Water Marina, then visit five different scenic locations on the lake to collect coupons. At the end of the day, boaters gather back at the marina for a drawing to award prizes.


The fun begins on Thursday evening, June 6 with a Welcome Party and Boat Showcase at Palmetto Distillery. June 7 brings a Friday morning “fun run” to Clemson beginning at Big Water Marina and a kick-off party featuring a live auction and live music that night. Saturday, June 8 is event day at Big Water Marina, and will feature live music from 11:00 am until…, including an after event party.  Thursday, Friday and Saturday will offer great music, great food and a great time!


Register to participate in a weekend of sun and fun on the water. Your participation will help raise much-needed funds to feed elderly and disabled homebound residents of Anderson County.


Online registration is available through Sunday, May 19th. After that date, onsite registration is required and the entry fee increases from $85 to $100.
