As we get closer to the festival (40 days to be exact!), there are a few things you should keep in mind as you begin thinking about your Lowcountry travel plans.
Here are a few things any festival-goer needs to know:
Grab your tickets…Your tickets to the festival are easily printable, but can also be accessed on your mobile phone! Use the latter method for a paperless, guilt-free, and organized event experience – because we know you’ll be having too much fun to worry about anything else.
Navigate safely…Whether you’re a visiting attendee or a lucky local, remember that parking can often be tricky downtown. Take advantage of our partner Über and their fantastic app, they’ll be your designated driver. Our city isn’t too big to navigate if you plan on driving on your own or even if you’re strictly walking, just remember to keep a map of the city on hand in case you get lost!
Dress in layers…Charleston’s bipolar weather time and time again proves to be just as unpredictable as it is beautiful. Whipping wind or intense rays can ruin your day if you’re not prepared, so plan on packing an umbrella, your sunnies, and a cute hat just in case. If you’re attending an excursion or an event outside for several hours you might also want to include a travel-size sunscreen to protect your skin. All events are held rain or shine.
Necessary gadgets…A few fun items can and will make all the difference for your festival experience. Check out these wine wipes to get rid of any messy stains and keep you smiling bright; they’re perfect for wine lovers everywhere. To ensure you can snap photos all day without running out of battery, pick up a phone case that protects and charges your cell at the same time! Last but not least, comfortable footwear is an essential for those long Charleston days and even more exciting nights, so keep your precious toes in mind!
Ask us…Don’t be afraid to ask questions! The CHSWFF staff and our volunteers will be around the Culinary Village and at select events in order to ensure you have an incredible weekend! Don’t know where to meet up before your excursion? Have a ticketing question? Just wanna chat about an upcoming event? We’re here to help! You can always call (843) 727-9998 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for all inquiries!
Pace yourself…Attending too many events in one day can be exhausting for jetsetters and chillaxers alike. We want you to enjoy the festival in all its glory – so sure, have that fifth glass of wine (or 6th, 7th…we won’t judge), just make sure to schedule some R&R in that busy agenda of yours!
We truly hope you enjoy every moment of your festival experience in the best city in the world, and don’t forget to stop and look around once in a while. You won’t wanna miss this.
