Charleston's Cultural Events

Charleston is a year round feast for the senses. Spring smells like tea olive, summer is synonymous salty breezes. Fall tastes like slow cooked collard greens, winter captivates with its scarlet camellia blooms. While certain aspects of Lowcountry life are constant no matter the time of year—like the rustle of palmetto fronds, crashing surf, and peal of church bells—each season ushers in unique sensations.

When azalea color the city, spring is officially sprung and scores of private residences open their doors for Historic Charleston Foundation’s annual tour of houses and gardens.

The sound of standing ovations says it’s late spring and Spoleto Festival USA and Piccolo Spoleto, the annual compendiums of acclaimed international and regional artists, are enlivening the area’s theatres, churches, parks, galleries, sidewalks and event venues with 17 days of performances.

Sand between the toes means summer is in full swing and family vacations are unfolding at area beaches.

Oysters roasted beneath wet burlap are a scent synonymous with fall.

Come during the Christmas season to experience some of America’s most historic homes and beloved plantations illuminated by candlelight, starlight and the sounds of spiritual music.

No matter the month, there is always something special waiting to be discovered.
