Festivals

Family fun throughout the year

Take your Myrtle Beach vacation to a whole new level by planning to attend one of the area's popular, family-friendly festivals during your next visit. With a wide variety of celebrations and special events happening throughout the year, chances are good you'll be able to experience one of the festivals that the make Myrtle Beach so much fun. Here are some of the area's favorites:

Can-Am Days Festival

The Myrtle Beach area celebrates Canadian-American Days each March by welcoming Canadian and American visitors to a festival line-up of fun events, giveaways, discounts and concerts taking place on the Grand Strand.  The Can-Am Days were introduced over 50 years ago, with attendance having grown to nearly 100,000 Canadian visitors and snowbirds who return each year.

World Famous Blue Crab Festival

Each May, the World Famous Blue Crab Festival lures over 50,000 visitors each year to the small fishing village of Little River, located North of Myrtle Beach. Thousands of festival attendees head to the waterfront to enjoy the live music, kids' activities, arts and crafts, and a healthy serving of the area's famous dish - blue crab!

MayFest On Main

This annual festival on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach kicks off the summer right! Bring a beach chair and enjoy family fun with the best live music, arts, crafts, food vendor, community stage and children's area. The festival is held the Saturday before Mother's Day.

Conway Riverfest

Kicking off the weekend before Independence Day, this popular festival features many live entertainment acts, an artisan market, a raft race, activities and games for all ages and food. This weekend of fun is located in downtown Conway along the banks of the majestic Waccamaw River. Come for the aesthetically-pleasing location, and stay for the events.

Beach, Boogie & BBQ Festival

Start Labor Day weekend off right and pack beach blankets and a big appetite before you head over to the Myrtle Beach area's Beach, Boogie & BBQ Festival. This three-day family-friendly event is held every Labor Day weekend.  Free beach music concerts, jet-ski demonstrations, arts and crafts vendors, and more are festival highlights.  Be sure not to miss Saturday's barbeque competition-when over 75 pit masters compete in a cook-off!

Aynor Harvest Hoe-down

This charming community in northern Horry County puts its best foot forward each fall with the Aynor Harvest Hoe-down. The day-long festival in late September showcases over 140 craft booths, entertainment, food and games. The day gets started with a parade and comes to a fantastic finish with a street dance. It's an autumn event the whole family can enjoy.

Little River ShrimpFest

Another popular festival that happens annually along the Little River waterfront, the annual October ShrimpFest, takes place every Columbus Day weekend. The fall festival draws thousands of visitors and locals outside into fall weather with excellent live jazz music and a mouth-watering shrimp cook-off. 

Loris Bog-Off Festival

At October's Loris Bog-Off Festival, it's the dish of choice for thousands of attendees each year. The annual festival is home to live entertainment, arts and crafts, fireworks, and more.

A Grand Strand Holiday

The Christmas season along the Grand Strand is one that can't be beat. Popular entertainment venues like the Alabama Theatre, the Carolina Opry, Legends in Concert and the Palace Theatre all offer holiday-themed extravaganzas. Parades ring in the season all along the Grand Strand, while holiday displays like the Night of a Thousand Candles at Brookgreen Gardens and Festival of Trees at Ripley's Aquarium are festivities to be enjoyed. There's also the Christmas Towne event, which features the city of Myrtle Beach's official Christmas tree lighting ceremony. All told, there's an abundance of holiday gifts just waiting to be unwrapped each and every year.
