2022 Valentines

February has arrived and we have so much going on this month in the Charleston area and in general!  It’s Black History Month, Chinese New Years is being celebrated on the 1st and it will be the Year of the Tiger, Groundhog Day follows on the 2nd, Valentine's Day is on the 14th, the Southeastern Wildlife Exhibition (SEWE) runs from the 17th to the 21st, Presidents’ Day is observed on the 21st this year, the Charleston Comedy Festival returns this year from the 23rd to the 26th, and Mardi Gras continues through the month culminating on March 1st. We have oyster roasts, including the 38th Annual Lowcountry Oyster Festival at Boone Hall in Mount Pleasant on the 6th, and a full mix of indoor and outdoor events and activities to keep everyone entertained. Plus, further afield, the Winter Olympics, being held in Beijing, China, take place from the 4th through the 20th.
