With the Spoleto and Piccolo Spoleto Festivals kicking off, there is already so much to do in Charleston for the next 17 days. But, there are always other worthy events you might not want to miss. One is the First Flush Festival.
What started as a innocent and simple way to celebrate the first tea harvest of the season (it’s located on the only tea plantation in America), now in its 9th year has turned into a full blown day of tea-growing hoopla with lots of food (almost 20 food trucks), fun, crafts and music (we’re talking 16 bands on two stages) — this year headlined by Sheryl Crow.
The Festival takes place on Sunday May 24th and runs from noon until 11:00 PM. Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 at the gate and, there is a $125 VIP option as well. All information and details can be found here.
Bring your sunscreen, a thirst for tea (the American Classic iced tea is free!) and music and have a great time.
