It’s Memorial Day Weekend, which means summer is officially here! Lowcountry summers are all about lazy beach days, keeping cool with a glass of sweet tea, and enjoying all of the summer events that Charleston has to offer. While the summer heats, up the event season cools down, meaning we as industry professionals look forward to all of the fun to be had over the summer.

Upcoming Events:

Charleston Margarita Festival – Nothing refreshes like a cool margarita on a hot summer day! We’re looking forward to the third annual festival, which showcases more than 20 local restaurants serving up their best margaritas for crowds looking to enjoy the beauty of Brittlebank Park while enjoying one of the tastiest cocktails of the season!

Movies in the Park – The Town of Mount Pleasant hosts movies in the lawn below the Ravenel Bridge every August. BYOB (Bring your own blanket!) and cozy up under the stars while enjoying a bite from one of the local food trucks at the event!

Spoleto Festival – Explore your creative side by witnessing the performances of some of best established and up and coming artists in the Lowcountry. Examples include dance, theater, comedy, and opera to name a few!

Garden Stroll & Wine Tasting  – Enjoy a glass – or several – of wines from around the world while strolling through the historic, manicured gardens of Middleton Place.
