Get Your Grub on at The Taste of Folly
Come and get it, y’all — indulge your inner foodie and head straight for the Edge of America to partake of the Taste of Folly.
Held each January, this favorite event proves enticing enough to make even the most disciplined among us throw caution to the wind and just dig in. We’re licking our chops just thinking about it!
To make room for this oh-so-tasty event, Center Street shuts down and transforms into four blocks worth of food and fun. In addition to local restaurants, other Folly Beach-based food vendors will be doling out delicious fare left and right.
Of course, you can’t have the Taste of Folly without a few of the festival’s most treasured traditions. Chili cook-off? Yes, please. Hot dog eating contest? You betcha. In addition, local food vendors will duke it out for “Best in Show.”
Don’t be shy about bringing the whole family out to fill their bellies too, because this is a family-friendly event. Little ones will be delighted by the food, obviously, but also fun activities and carnival games — including a mechanical shark.
Other highlights include a silent auction, local art vendors, a date auction, and the server Olympics. Oh, and we can’t forget a fixture at every major Folly festival: live music. Past lineups have included beloved local acts like Dallas Baker & Friends.
While admission to the festival is free, you will need to pony up $20 if you want to sample from the cocktail competition. Other than that, just bring your appetite (and perhaps a pair of stretchy pants).
