Ah, fall in the south. When the temperatures let up ever-so slightly, a cool breeze shakes the turning leaves to the ground, oyster-roast season starts to pick up steam, and annual harvest and Halloween celebrations abound. This year is no exception. Below, some of our favorite ways to soak up all the fall fun the Charleston region has to offer!
Vroom, Vroom. If you’re into muscle cars, antique cars, or just enjoy a sunny day with great entertainment and even friendlier people, join us this Saturday for the 5th Annual Dream Machines Open Auto Show. The event is back at Nexton for the second-year in a row, and we can’t wait for all the great vendors, incredible cars, and family-friendly activities.
Be artsy. The Charleston Arts Festival kicked off September 22nd, but several featured events will take place this month. Catch Myth of An Atom October 12 & 13, a live audiovisual performance that fuses hip hop, R&B, future bass, and electronic soundscapes with fluid, sound reactive imagery. The Halloween-themed festival finale on October 28th is an all-encompassing arts extravaganza featuring live dance, comedy, and a costume contest.

Dogs are encouraged to don their best Halloween attire to enter the costume contest. All proceeds go to participating pet rescues. Mark your calendar for October 28th!
