Come down to Folly Beach Friday April 10, 2015 and Saturday April 11, 2015 and enjoy food, arts and crafts, family fun, and live music. Center Street will be closed on Saturday to allow the free flow of jams from multiple stages including Folly Beach’s own Dangermuffin. Can’t wait to see that show after Guilt Ridden Troubadour & Cary Hudson, the Shakin Martinis, Kevin West, Folly Beach Bluegrass Society, and Bringers of the Dawn rock the street. The 25th annual Sea & Sand festival is shaping up to be one of the best in years for this milestone anniversary.
The Sea & Sand Festival is Folly Beach’s largest, longest-running and most well-attended festival and features live music on two stages, a kids activity zone with jump castles, carnival games, face-painting and more, silent auction, local art and food vendors, a full day street party, a pageant, a 5K run/walk/skate and more.
