The Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation's popular Myrtle Beach Seafood Festival returns Friday and Saturday, November 1 and 2, 2019. The star of this super fun event is its seafood, but it also features beverage and artisan vendors and takes place at the Burroughs & Chapin Pavilion Place, located between 8th and 9th Avenues North in downtown Myrtle Beach. Admission to this event is free, which I love. It also takes place during a time of year where attendees can expect less congestion in the downtown Myrtle Beach area, which I also…

Taste of the Town is back November 5 th at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center! Established in 1984, this is the Grand Strand’s original food festival and ultimate food lover’s paradise. Not only will you find samples from dozens of the area’s finest restaurants, but there will also be live entertainment, silent auction, and beer garden. You will buy an admission ticket to enter the event, then food and drinks are available for 1-4 tickets that you can buy for $1 each. This is hands down my favorite food event of the year. It’s a great way to see…

October is one of my favorite months of the year here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It must be some other people’s favorite as well, because the month is full of fun, outdoor festivals made even more enjoyable by the warm (but not hot) temperatures and decreased humidity. One festival I generally like to catch each fall is the Little River ShrimpFest. While the festival is celebrating their 15th year along the historic Little River waterfront, you hear about it somewhat less often than the huge Little River Blue Crab Festival. Unlike Blue…

Saturday, October 19, 2019, will mark the 40th year that Loris, South Carolina, has hosted the ever-popular Loris Bog-Off Festival. The festival, sponsored by the Loris Chamber of Commerce, happens on the third Saturday in October every year in downtown Loris. While the fun, family-friendly event initially began as a chicken bog cooking competition, it has transformed into a huge celebration over the past four decades. The thousands of attendees that go now get to experience an entire day packed with entertainment, vendors, food, and fun for…

Spring is one of my favorite times of year here in the Myrtle Beach area. While the weather may be a little more unpredictable, humidity is generally much lower than the summer months. It’s the perfect time of year for a lineup of fun outdoor events including the popular Myrtle Beach Food Truck Festival. We’ve been the past two years and enjoyed it so much! The three-day festival runs from April 26 to April 28, 2019, and is hosted by the Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation and the City of Myrtle Beach. Friday’s hours are 6 to 10…

No one does ‘family friendly’ quite like the Town of Surfside Beach, which is why we always look forward to any of the events they host throughout the year.

This coming Friday and Saturday, March 8 and 9, 2019, the Town of Surfside Beach will be holding its 10th…
