Events, News & Activities in Charleston, SC - April 2016 Edition

Volvo Car Open Image Courtesy is here, the azaleas are in bloom and Charleston is showing its beauty! Summerville just had a boom weekend with its Flowertown Festival. What a great month to take a stroll through Middleton or Magnolia Gardens. It’s truly a must see. We just had 35,000 people in town for the Cooper River Bridge Run. It was a little rainy, but that didn’t really seem to bother anyone. The big events this month are the WTA Volveo Car Open tennis tournament at Daniel Island that goes from April 2-10 and all the house and garden tours. The 69th Annual Festival of Houses and Gardens goes on all month until the 25th. And the farmer’s market in Marion Square downtown gets started again on April 9. You can also go see acts such as Gregg Allman, Widespread Panic, David Sedaris, and Amy Schumer. And you need to start planning and making reservations for Spoleto Festival in May.
