Celebrate April, Charleston style
We don’t have to tell the locals that the Charleston region is spectacular this time of year. Here, we’re already reveling in all the signs that spring is imminent. Temps peaking in the low 80s. Wisteria draping trees and fences. Pollinators buzzing about.
With all the natural splendor comes a burst of human activity, too. Fun-for-all-ages activities start to ramp up, and the question is no longer what’s to do? But rather, however will we choose?
A few of our favorites below. Are these not floating your boat? Not to worry. There is, quite literally, something for everyone this time of year. The Charleston CVB is a good place to start filling up your spring event calendar.
Charleston Brunch Festival
March 28, 12-4 pm | Johnson Hagood Stadium at The Citadel
Have you heard? Charleston is the brunch city, and this festival celebrates our penchant for elaborate midday meals. This 21+ event will feature brunch bites from some of Charleston’s favorite restaurants and food trucks like Dashi and Wicked Waffles, mimosas, bloody marys, brunch punch, beer, wine, a silent disco tent, a DJ and live music by Davis & The Love. Details.
Middleton Place Wine & Garden Strolls
Wednesdays beginning March 29, 5:30-7:30 | Middleton Place
A weekly favorite, Middleton Place’s wildly popular wine & garden strolls are back for the season. Spend the evening sipping worldly wines while exploring America's Oldest Landscaped Gardens. Each week highlights different wines and regions. Details.
Cooper River Bridge Run
April 1 | Starts on Coleman Blvd
Did you know the pedestrian path on the Ravenel Bridge almost didn’t happen? Someone told the mayor at the time that he couldn’t see why people would want to walk across the bridge. Today, not only do hundreds cross it on foot daily, but the bridge has also become home to one of the largest 10K races in the world. The Cooper River Bridge Run is in its 46th year and boasts over 30,000 runners. Will you be one of them? Details.
March 31-April 2 | Downtown Summerville
Another record-making event happens in tandem with the bridge run, and it takes place right here in Summervilel! The Summerville Family YMCA Flowertown Festival is celebrating its 50th year with a 3-day weekend of southern hospitality amidst one of the largest arts and crafts festivals in the Southeast. Don’t miss it! Details.
Credit One Charleston Open
April 1-9, Credit One Stadium
If you’re a tennis aficionado or just love to watch athletes at the top of their game, we know the Credit One Charleston Open has you stoked! Charleston’s coastal backdrop “provides the perfect environment for backhands, dropshots and roars from the crowd. In Charleston, we annually welcome top ranked players and enthusiastic fans to a state-of-the-art stadium for nine days of action, athleticism and a whole lot of fun.” We cannot wait to see these phenomenal players on the court!
