Middleton Place

Below I have listed prominent festivals and events that take place annually in the Tri-County area. Keep in mind that an annual event may sometimes take place in a month other than what is listed below, usually to accommodate holidays that are early or late. So check the months before and after if you aren't able to find what you're looking for. We also may not have received the event details yet, so come back as time draws closer.

You'll see the wide variety of things to do year round throughout the Lowcountry. With some of the best South Carolina events out there, Charleston is definitely a happening place! I've been to many of these, but my all time favorite is the Spoleto Festival Finale at Middleton Place!

For a price that is about $10-15 more than normal admission, you get a whole day's worth of diversified, cultural entertainment. Not only do you have the opportunity to walk and tour the gorgeous grounds, gardens, house and live stock, but you can also bring a picnic with chairs and a blanket, and then enjoy a performance by the Spoleto Orchestra which culminates with an impressive fireworks display. It's awesome! My biggest advice for this event... stay hydrated and bring sunscreen. It's in June and it can be HOT! Scratch that... it IS HOT! Still, in my opinion, its definitely one of the top Charleston events.

Needless to say you'll always have something to do in Charleston! So gather up your friends, your significant other or your kids and get out there!
