2018 Coastal Carolina Fair

Charleston has hosted a fair every year since 1924. This tradition has evolved over the years from a small county fair to the colossal tri-county event it is today. In 1957, the Exchange Club of Charleston took charge and made valuable improvements. It boasts an excellent reputation for providing safe, clean, and fun rides. All events and activities are family-friendly. The icing on the cake: The Exchange Club utilizes this fabulous event to raise money for local charities and scholarships. In 2017 they were able to offer over $800,000 to more that 90 worthy organizations and students in the Lowcountry!

There is something for everyone at the Fair. Why not start a new family tradition? It's always a great night out with friends. Make your plans now so you don't miss out. For more information and tickets: Coastal Carolina Fair

Traditional Rag Quilting Workshop

Charleston is such an amazing place to live; it is rich in culture and steeped in tradition. Rag quilting is a folk art tradition that dates back to the antebellum period. This is a disappearing art form, but one that Sharon Cooper Murray (the Gullah Lady) is determined to preserve. Together with the Charleston Museum, she is sharing her passion. Join Sharon on Saturday, July 28th for a lecture and hands-on workshop on rag quilting. 

The rag quilting technique is traditionally passed from generation to generation. Cooper-Murray learned the process from Gullah women of Wadmalaw and Johns Island. These unique quilts were customarily constructed with feed and grain sacks and rag strips. This enchanting workshop will not only open your heart and mind to this vanishing art form, but will provide you the opportunity to start your own project. Space is limited, and reservations are required. For more information and to claim your spot, visit:  The Charleston Museum - Rag Quilting Workshop
