South Carolina Festivals and Events

There’s always something to celebrate in South Carolina!

We admit it. We love our festivals and events in South Carolina. Maybe that’s why every year we host more than 425 South Carolina festivals throughout the year. That means there are more South Carolina festivals than there are days in the year – and we’ve got a good excuse for every one of them! They’re a great addition to the many things to do at the beach and a wonderful way to enjoy the authentic sights, sounds, flavors and fun that make our state such a wonderful place to live and visit.

Our food festivals range from McClellanville’s Lowcountry Shrimp Festival to Gaston’s Collard Festival. If you’re of the botanical persuasion, The Festival of Roses in Orangeburg and the SC Festival of Flowers in Greenwood are just two ways we celebrate just about everything that blooms! History and heritage more your bag? Beaufort’s Gullah Festival is world renowned for its authentic music, presentations and crafts, perfect if you're looking for more things to do at the beach while in the Lowcountry. The arts come to life every year at Charleston’s Spoleto Festival USA and Greenville’s Artisphere. And let’s not forget our love of sports, celebrated each year with events like the Heritage Golf Tournament, Camden’s Carolina and Colonial Cup horse races and NASCAR races at Darlington Raceway.

The South Carolina festivals and events never seem to end! Find family beach vacation deals and come celebrate with us.
