Celebrate with Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art  

Celebrate art, food, wine, music, dance, and more at the annual Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art. The program, which runs Oct. 7-22, includes amazing displays of arts, a wine gala, musical performances and so much more. Performances are held in the performance tent at The Reserve Golf Club of Pawleys Island.

The Festival will kick off with its 22nd Annual Wine and Food Gala on Oct. 6, followed by a full schedule of musical performances.

“We’re excited about this year’s lineup,” says Delores Blount, the festival’s director.  

This year’s opening performance, on Oct. 7, will feature the beautiful and talented Giada Valenti, who was highlighted in a recent PBS special with Andrea Bocelli. Following Valenti’s performance, festival-goers will have an opportunity to hear Orleans and Firefall, tributes to the beloved Linda Ronstadt and the Temptations, and other talented acts, including country performer Kurt Thomas and American Idol finalist Michael Lynche.

“We are pleased to welcome these artists to our 31st Annual Festival,” says Blount. “It’s hard to believe that for the past 30 years, we have been offering performances of this caliber to our friends and neighbors in the Lowcountry. This year’s ticket sales are strong, with some events at near sell-out."
