Have you heard? Our parties are serious business and YOU are invited! Each year, Merck Mtn. Jam. brings together folks from all walks of life to enjoy great music in the great outdoors. Bands play for free and people pay to stay. Why? Because we give the money away! Our events benefits Helping Hands of Clemson, Inc., an emergency shelter for abused and neglected children.
Merck Mtn. is held the 3rd weekend of April. For only $15, party-goers enjoy an eclectic lineup of 10+ bands who volunteer their time and talent. Free primitive camping is welcomed. But, bring cash to shop local Arts and Craft vendors & purchase food fresh from the grill. Bring your babies & beverages of choice. But, leave your pets at home.
What is Merck Mtn NOT?
It’s not where you should wear your fancy shoes or white pants. There are no VIP bathrooms or group yoga classes in the mornings. It’s not an arts festival. It’s a party.
Where is Merck Mtn?
310 Browning Rd. Central, SC 29630 (That’s between Central & Six Mile, just off of Hwy.133. Browning Rd. is across from Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. 6 minutes from Clemson.)
Where does the money go?
We don’t keep a dime. After paying the bills, we donate the rest of the money to Helping Hands of Clemson, Inc., an emergency shelter for abused and neglected children.
What should you bring to Merck Mtn?
CASH.. for $15 admission into the event, food in the Drunken Goat Saloon & awesomeness from the art / craft vendors.
CHAIRS… because no one dances all the time.
CAMPING GEAR… why go home when you can sleep in the woods?
CHILDREN… IF you plan to watch them. Grandma would love a little quality time with the babies, otherwise.
COMRADES… aka your favorite party people.
COOLERS… we don’t sell alcohol. So, bring your stash.
