Claflin Arts & Letters Annual Bash is a yearly festival held at Claflin University in Orangeburg, South Carolina. 
Originally envisioned as a single day to celebrate the artistic culture of the university, Calabash has grown into a weeklong celebration.  
Overnight, the campus transforms, giving way to street vendors, live performances, and a cornucopia of artistic expression and school pride!  
To the students, it feels like another spring break filled with fun, laughter, good food, and good music. "This annual festival is a great way to break up the tedium and monotony of campus life, providing a relaxed atmosphere for everyone to let loose and have fun before finals," said Clafin alum,Toney Gaines.
