Festival season is in full bloom in the Lowcountry. The early warm weather in the southeast brings some of the best 5K races, food festivals, and concerts. One of the most exciting and celebrated here in the Lowcountry is the Charleston Bluegrass Festival!
Before you know it, March is going to be here. With the warmer weather and sunnier days, the Lowcountry is going to see the return of one of our favorite yearly events. It’s time to get your banjos, your camping gear, and your hiking boots out! It’s time for the Charleston Bluegrass Festival and you do NOT want to miss the fun! This incredibly fun and exciting event takes place at the Woodlands Nature Reserve, and will happen this year on March 20th and 21st!
In its 7th year, Charleston is so excited to see the return of some of the best names in Bluegrass today. The actual festival takes place just 20 minutes outside of downtown Charleston on the stunning 6000-acre reserve that Woodlands Nature Reserve calls home. This stunning hidden gem is one of Charleston’s most sought after destinations. One exciting part of this festival is that you can camp for the entire weekend while enjoying the festivities. The reserve boasts 11 lakes, a black water cypress swamp, and miles and miles of wooded trails. Camping on the reserve is just outstanding and worth your time. This is more than just a music festival. This is for the music and nature lover alike. The purchase of camping does not include passes for the event, those tickets must be purchased separately.
This year’s festival will be celebrating with the finest names in Bluegrass along with local food and craft vendors, amazing drink tents and bar setups, and other exciting outdoor activities. This year the celebration is presented by Friends with Benefits Productions, Awendaw Green, and Ear for Music. This year’s lineup is very exciting and includes:
