Coming to Folly Beach during September can be so much fun for you and your family. After Labor Day, things can settle down in Folly Beach, but it doesn’t mean the fun has to. This year the Sea and Sand Festival is happening from September 21st-23rd on Folly Beach. Staying in one of our oceanfront vacation rentals can keep you close to where all the action is happening for this fun festival. Let’s look below at what there is to come for the festival this year.
Miss Sea & Sand Pageant
The Miss Sea & Sand Pageant is back for its 5th year crowing 9 winners based on their age, category, hobbies, volunteer activities, awards and their love for Folly Beach. This is open to all females from the ages of 4 years and up and males 7 years and under. The pageant categories this year are Tiny Miss, Little Miss, Junior Teen, Teen, Junior Miss, Miss, Misses and Little Mister. There will be additional awards given as well. Watch these cuties and beauties strut their stuff starting at 7:00 pm September 21st at Folly River Park. Admission is free for this event.
Sea & Sand Festival
Join us on September 22nd from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Center Street for a day of fun in the sun. This year the Sea & Sand Festival will include arts, crafts, fashion vendors and live music. There will be kid activities and some pretty amazing Folly Beach Restaurants servings up some awesome food. Admission is $6 in advance and $10 at the door but you don’t want to miss out on the fun going on that day. Please note that you cannot bring animals, coolers, bikes, skateboards, and other similar items to the festival. This is for everyone’s safety as we like to keep everyone safe during this event.
Sea & Sand Side Show for the Kids
Bringing the kids this year is perfect as there will be an area just for the kids. There will be Bubble Therapy, face painting, mermaid visits, jugglers and even some inflatables. From a Kids Kitchen to Arts & Crafts for the kids there will be something for all kids of all ages. And worried about the inflatables for the younger kids, there will be one reserved just for toddlers. There is going to be a few more things for the kids to enjoy during the festival this year.
Sandcastle & Volleyball Competitions
Spending the day on the beach by the pier on the sand is just what you need for the final day of the festival. You will be able to see some pretty amazing sandcastles and there will even be some volleyball competitions that day. Don’t leave the weekend without experiencing this amazing event! You will want to return each year after visiting this one.
