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

Spoleto Festival 2016May is here and the spring weather has been spectacular. May is a big month for Charleston because of the Spoleto Festival USA and it’s sister festival the Piccolo Spoleto. These start in late May and run until June 12.

These festivals offer a vast array of events and are the greatest cultural activity in Charleston SC each year.

The Greek Festival is also another highlight for May.

Kudos to some of our local high schools that won awards from US News and World Report. Academic Magnet High School and Charleston School of the Arts were awarded Gold Medals while Wando High School in Mt Pleasant received a Silver Medal.
