CHARLESTON, SC (Lowcountry Weekend) – The Charleston Wine + Food Festival is set to offer a free family event for the first time in its 16-year history in early March.
The festival will host its “Flick at Night” on March 3 in Hampton Park. The free event will feature an outdoor movie, “Hundred-Foot Journey,” from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and guests will receive free popcorn and water. They will be able to buy food and other drinks on site from food trucks.
Visitors should bring their own blankets and chairs.
The festival kicks off with a sold-out opening night on March 2 and runs until March 6.
Events include brunches, lunches, dinners, beverage workshops and cooking classes as well as excursions.
For the first time, the Festival’s Culinary Village will take place at Riverfront Park in North Charleston, located at 1061 Everglades Ave., giving visitors a view of the waterfront, room to walk around and more space to ” taste + sip,” its website states.
The festival will feature a new pavilion at the Culinary Village, which will be accessible without a ticket. Stop by the food court to experience some of the tastes and sounds that make up the Culinary Village. The Pavilion will operate from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 4-6 and is open to all ages.
The new offerings are part of an effort to bring the community together.
“We are so grateful to the community for supporting the festival all these years,” said General Manager Gillian Zettler. “By programming opportunities for everyone to come together, we hope to create an even greater platform for the community to enjoy the spirit of the festival.”
