The Myrtle Beach area is known throughout the world for its 60 miles of beautiful sandy beaches, warm weather and first-class entertainment and attractions. Visitors continue to be amazed and delighted as they discover Myrtle Beach’s charm, culture and history—much of which is showcased in a variety of unique annual festivals and events.

The kick-off to summer begins with Sun Fun Festival 2017. On June 2 and 3 visit Plyler Park for live bands, shagging contests, a parade and more.

Music lovers won’t want to miss the 3rd annual Carolina Country Music Fest, June 8-11, featuring Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Big and Rich, and other talented singers and bands. Hot Summer Nights also returns to the Boardwalk with family entertainment on multiple evenings throughout the summer including live music, a kids carnival, celebrity impersonators and fireworks.

For the foodie in every family, there are plenty of festivals throughout the year that feature local culinary favorites. In May, the Myrtle Beach area will see the 36th annual return of the popular World Famous Blue Crab Festival, which lures over 50,000 visitors each year to the small fishing village of Little River. Attendees head to the waterfront to enjoy the live music, kids activities, arts and crafts, and a healthy serving of the area’s famous dish—blue crab! This will be followed by the popular Coastal Uncorked event in early September.

Visitors can also live like a local by attending festivals that highlight regional traditions. September brings the Aynor Harvest Hoedown and October features the Loris Bog-Off Festival (chicken bog is the dish of choice for thousands of attendees each year). Both festivals are home to live entertainment, arts and crafts, fireworks, and more.

From free summer fireworks to movies, parades, and everything in between, there is something wonderful to see, do and celebrate in the Myrtle Beach area 365 days a year.

And be sure to check out all the Christmas and New Year’s Eve activities in the area as well!
