Taste of Folly 2016

Get to Center Street on Folly Beach this weekend for a huge festival, beginning on Friday evening.

The annual Taste of Folly festival begins with a Bartender event at the Tides Hotel where mixologists sling tasty cocktails and try to win an award for Best Bartender and Best cocktail. Last year, the Grill & Island Bar took the crown for their signature Strawberry Basil Margarita.

Tickets for this event are $20, and you’ll be able to sample each of the creative concoctions by the contestants. The festival continues on Saturday with over 20 food vendors, artists, a mechanical bull, chili cook off, kids activities and live music.

The festival kicks off a new year as the first of several that are coming up over the next few months. FollyGras kicks off Feb 6th which drew a crowd of over 10,000 last year, and the Sea & Sand Festival will be happening in the spring.

Where & When:

  • Friday, January 15th at the Tides Hotel from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.
  • The full day street festival event is Saturday, January 16th from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m on Center Street in Folly Beach

The weather this year is predicting sunny conditions with a high of 63 degrees. We hope to see you there!
