Another month is coming to a close and April appears to be chock-full of fun events for the whole family! From food festivals and running events to Easter celebrations and cook-offs, there is something for everyone in our event line-up for April. Don’t believe us? See for yourself!
Cooper River Bridge Run (April 1)
It may be too late to register for this popular 10K, but you can still enjoy the after-parties in downtown Charleston after the race! Join thousands of your closest friends at The Macintosh’s Burgers, Beer and Bluegrass party or stop by O-Ku for some refreshing sushi and sake. There are also some food and drink specials at Fish for bridge runners, family and friends to enjoy.
Volvo Car Open (April 1-9)
If tennis is more of your scene, make sure to snag a few tickets to watch some of the sport’s most iconic players in action at the largest women’s only tennis tournament in North America — right here in the Lowcountry. In addition to seeing tennis champion Venus Williams, among other top women’s professionals, you’ll also have the opportunity to see John McEnroe, Andy Roddick and James Blake compete in a special opening event.
Folly Beach Sea & Sand Festival (April 7-8)
Folly Beach’s longest-running event, the 27th annual Sea & Sand Festival kicks off with the Miss Sea & Sand Pageant. Festivities continue on Saturday with a celebration of Folly art and food that stretches up Center Street from Huron to Ashley, along with a giant kids’ activities zone, a silent auction, and six live bands!
Easter Events (April 16)
If you are looking to start a new tradition for Easter, start with Easter at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, where there will be an egg hunt, sand sculpting, crafts and treats! For a more low-key affair, stop by the Drawing Room for Easter Brunch. Enjoy a non-denominational Easter service on the Village Green and fill up on delicious food at the Grand Easter Buffet at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina — complete with an Easter egg hunt on the beach!
10th Annual Chef’s Potluck (April 30)
Hosted at Middleton Place, this annual event features 16 chefs who are paired with local farmers, fishermen and ranchers to create the freshest and most delicious local dishes to the Lowcountry. Enjoy live music, local libations and tastings from each chef in one of America’s oldest landscaped garden. Proceeds from the event will benefit Lowcountry Local First’s “Growing New Farmers” Program.
