The weather is getting warmer, and the events in the surrounding Charleston area are just starting to heat up! Festival season is finally upon us, and you won't want to miss out on these Lowcountry celebrations. Whether you love bluegrass music, seafood or Cajun food, or even mimosas, you are sure to find a festival for any and every occasion here in the Holy City.
Our favorite annual spring festivals include the Flowertown Festival and the Freshfields Village Spring Festival. We heard the Easter Bunny may even make an appearance at Freshfields Village, so bring the whole family. Come join in and make this spring break a memorable one!
Dive into Charleston's eclectic music scene this spring with the Charleston Bluegrass Festival, the perfect way to open the spring music festival season!
For the fifth year running, bluegrass can be heard across three different stages. Lots of local food and beverages will be served along with the great music. Looking to enjoy a bit of music of Charleston's history? You'll want to check out The Sounds of Charleston, featuring music from gospel to Gershwin, including spiritual pieces, Civil War campsongs, Gullah, and jazz.
For the 28th year, the Lowcountry Cajun Festival brings a taste of Louisiana to the Lowcountry.
An abundance of cajun and creole inspired food will be featured, along with food trucks, drinks, and music. If you haven’t tried gator, now is your chance! Another great option includes the Blessing of the Fleet and Seafood Festival, which is in its 23rd year running. Starting with a boat parade,bring the whole family down to enjoy the live music, seafood, craft shows, and free activities.
Brunch & Drink Festivals
Looking for libations? “Sunday Brunch” is just about as southern as our southern sweet tea. And, the Charleston Mimosa Festival is too sweet to pass up. Enjoy Charleston's best brunch bites, along with a day’s worth of mimosas. For the first time ever, Charleston Mimosa Festival is taking place at The Bend in North Charleston.
