I always enjoy any chance to hang out along Main Street in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Partly because North Myrtle Beach is where I grew up and partly because the city of North Myrtle Beach hosts so many great events along its scenic Main Street. The next fun event they’ll host is the 14th Annual Mayfest on Main Festival, which will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2019, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Mayfest on Main heralds the beginning of summer with fantastic live music, festival vendors, children’s area and much more all along popular Main Street in North Myrtle Beach. The one-day event is rain or shine and draws around 15,000 people to the downtown North Myrtle Beach area.
Admission to the festival is free, as is parking, but you’ll have plenty of chances to spend a little money as around 100 crafters will display their crafts for sale. Food vendors also serve a variety of dishes, and a community stage will offer live music and performances from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The larger live entertainment acts will take to the main stage located in ‘The Horseshoe’ at 12 p.m. and will continue until 6 p.m. This is usually where my crowd likes to head with their beach chairs for the afternoon. It’s a sunny area, so make sure to pack water and wear sunscreen because once you’re there, you’re going to want to stay for a while.
Another plus to this event is the opportunity to stroll Main Street throughout the day. There are a number of great local shops with one-of-a-kind souvenirs, along with other popular bars and restaurants. For more information on Mayfest on Main in North Myrtle Beach, click here.
