Field + Fire – February 1-3, 2019

Palmetto Bluff was purchased in 1902 by New York banker Richard T. Wilson, Jr., who initially planned to establish a hunting estate on the land. Needless to say, sporting life is a big part of Palmetto Bluff’s heritage! The Field + Fire weekend carries on this rich tradition by providing a variety of curated field sports, art exhibitions, and sporting dog exhibitions designed with the outdoor enthusiast in mind.
