If it’s fall, we are ushering in our annual festival season. In fact, nearly 80 percent of respondents to our Resident Sentiment Survey say these marquee events have a positive impact on their quality of life.

Just in time for National Arts and Humanities Month, Hilton Head Island’s Crescendo is underway with concerts, theatrical productions, exhibits, seminars, and more. It wraps up with the Lantern Parade on November 11 – a new tradition that’s not to be missed. Click here for details.

This week, we celebrate fine art and local cuisine with the 18th annual Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival. There are so many activities that week and it caps off with the two-day Street Fest that includes great food, art, and live music. Click here for more.

We’re also honored to welcome The PGA Tour back to the Lowcountry with the CJ Cup this week at the Congaree Golf Club. Golf has a $3.3 billion impact on our state economy, according to the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism. We’re honored to be a part of that impact. Click here for details.

We can’t mention fall without the Concours d’Elegance, returning for its 20th year November 4-6. The event attracts so many to the Lowcountry to show their appreciation for the art of automobiles. Click here for the 2022 schedule.

Those events are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to local happenings this fall and beyond. We have the rundown on all these events and more in our weekly Lowcountry Lowdown email. If you know someone who would enjoy it, please send them the link to sign up here.

These events are also an economic driver for our economy and just another perk of the Lowcountry lifestyle we enjoy.

Make it a great week!
