Featured Events for April

April is a busy month for Charleston!  There are several stage performances, festivals, fundraisers, and annual events throughout the Lowcountry.  It is nearly impossible to catch everything, but here are some of our recommendations:



The Summerville Flowertown Festival started 44 years ago as an enjoyable way to bring the community together while benefiting the local YMCAs.  Now known as the premier event in the Town of Summerville, visitors come from all over to enjoy the radiant azaleas, blooming wisteria, and gleaming dogwoods.  The event has now expanded to three days featuring artists and vendors from along the Eastern seaboard, delicious local fare, and a kid’s corner with activities and carnival rides.  Admission is free.

The Cooper River Bridge Run, a race which promotes heart health and allows participants to enjoy scenic views along the way to the finish line. The Arthur Ravenel Bridge is now host to this well-known Charleston event (because who wants to abandon a legacy?) which is now in its 39th year, benefiting an abundance of charities, such as Ronald McDonald House, American Cancer Society, Special Olympics of SC, and Pet Helpers (just to name a few).  Runners and walkers get the opportunity to travel across the bridge, weaving in and out of four lanes legally, with live bands and onlookers cheering them to the finish line.

The Volvo Car Open (originally Family Circle Cup) is now in its 44th year and is the largest women’s tennis tournament in the world.  Daniel Island is host to this renowned event, which has included several well-known champions such as Tracy Austin, Serena Williams, Steffi Graf, and Venus Williams.  The event originally began in Hilton Head in 1973 and eventually called Charleston home in 2001.

On April 9th, a Saturday highlight begins- the Marion Square Farmer’s Market! Indulge in the best local fruits, vegetables, and meats that Charleston has to offer.  This reoccurring Saturday morning event features not only a variety of local fare, but also vendors, artists, and live music.  We couldn’t think of a better place to gather the food for your table!

Whether you are a local or a tourist, get out there and experience Local Charleston, you will not be disappointed!
