We are excited that the Myrtle Beach Bowl is BACK on Saturday, December 16, 2023 at 2:30 pm EST on ESPN!

*Please note the date change. 

The two teams are still TBD, but will battle it out to be the champion of the Myrtle Beach Bowl at Brooks Stadium on the campus of Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC - not far from central Myrtle Beach.

On December 16, prior to the Myrtle Beach Bowl game, college football fans can enjoy a variety of free activities outside of Brooks Stadium on the Coastal Carolina University campus. University Blvd. will open to foot traffic only shortly after 9 a.m. and the Myrtle Beach Bowl Fan Fest will start at 11 a.m. and run just before kickoff time at 2:30 p.m. Music, food, vendors and interactive fun will all be available for the entire family. 

The Myrtle Beach Bowl is not the only thing happening in Myrtle Beach! We have a plethora of fun activities - beachy or holiday - depending on your vibe. Here are a few of our suggestions if you and your family are in town for the weekend:
