If you love Folly Beach, then come share your memories and your love at it's 40th birthday party, Friday, September 20 - Sunday September 22, 2013.  Folly Beach became a city in 1973, and this year marks the 40th anniversary, so the City of Folly Beach and the Folly Association of Business want to turn back the clock and create a festival atmosphere to celebrate Folly style.  Bring your family down to join in the fun as carnival rides such as a carousel, ferris wheel, and swings will be present as well as local vendors selling food and arts and crafts, and bands will fill the air with music.  Other events include a 5K run/walk, a classic car show, shag lessons, and more.

Saturday September 21 - 11:00 - 8:00

Sunday September 22 - 12:00 - 5:00
