Haven’t made it to the Lowcountry Oyster Festival? Make this year your year! It’s THE Charleston not-to-miss event in January, and you haven’t missed it (unless you’re reading this post after January 25th, 2015, in which case you have). We won’t recreate the wheel and provide you with all the details when you can simply visit the Festival’s website but we will let you know a couple of things that maybe you didn’t about this event:
- It’s more than oysters. What? Yep–although oysters are obviously the pearl of this event (sorry, we’re awful), there are PLENTY of other restaurant vendors to buy from if you’re not into the oyster scene. And plenty of beer and wine. Enuf said.
- It’s kid friendly, and they’ll actually learn something! Check here for details on Pluff-a-Pallooza Children’s Area by GoodCleanFun. Yes, you read that right. Check it out!
- It may seem expensive, but proceeds from the festival go to some pretty amazing charities including: The Ronald McDonald House, Hospitality Heroes, Hollings Cancer Center, Shriners Hospitals for Children and Charleston County Schools Science Materials Resource Center
So what should you know?
Date, Time, Location: Sunday, January 25, 12-5, Boone Hall Farm

Tickets are just $5 on Wednesday nights, $10 on Friday nights and $10-$12.50 on Saturday nights.
