Spoleto Festival USA

Summer is starting to heat up as we jump into June, and we have lots to look forward to and much to celebrate this month! Charleston’s Spoleto Festival USA and Piccolo Spoleto Festival are well underway and there are still many exciting events left to see before they end on June 11th! June is also Pride Month, and we recognize the LGBTQ+ community with local events including the Pride Parade downtown, Pride Fest, and the Youth Pride Festival. Some of the major holidays/days of observation include Flag Day (14th), Juneteenth (17th), and Father’s Day (19th). For more reasons to have some fun, check out these themed holidays as well as our list below of Charleston happenings (with links provided) for June. There’s truly something for everyone!
