Three fall festivals to get into during your upcoming golf vacation
The Grand Strand is not just known for golf, but for great hospitality and entertainment away from the course. This fall, Myrtle Beach is set to host an incredible lineup of festivals. Be sure to plan your next Coastal Golfaway around one of these truly noteworthy occasions:
October 11-12, 2019, celebrate Oktoberfest in central Myrtle Beach at the Market Common, where 40+ vendors will be offering a wide variety of craft beers and German cuisine, along with live music and entertainment and a pumpkin patch, face painting and jump castles for kids. Come early or stay after to enjoy the shopping at Market Common as well, with stores such as Bath & Body Works, Elegant Pet Store & Resort and Sunglass Hut.
The 15th Annual Little River ShrimpFest will take place Oct. 12-13 – the same weekend as Oktoberfest – at the Historic Little River Waterfront. Each fall, Little River shuts down street traffic, allowing festivalgoers to walk and shop at vendors ranging from arts & crafts, to cigars, to apparel. Live music features local bands that everyone will enjoy. And, of course, eat fresh, locally sourced seafood, burgers and barbeque, in addition to festival favorites like funnel cakes and corndogs. There’s a lot to see (and taste) at the ShrimpFest this fall.
Finally, Loris will host its 40th Annual Bog-Off, a day with entertainment, vendors and food prepared by the local community on Oct. 19. The festival began in 1980 as a chicken bog-cooking contest and has evolved into a comprehensive event that includes over 200 vendors, two stages and a sizable area for children to play. Performances include local dance academies, school music programs and bands. The festival wraps up with a fireworks display and free concert.
All three festivals are sure to bring the good times to the Grand Strand this fall. So, book your next Coastal Golfaway and include as many as you can during your trip!
