Opening Night

Cistern Yard at the College of Charleston

We’re thrilled to be back together again! Let’s kick off 22Together – literally – with this epic Opening Night celebration at The Cistern at the beautiful College of Charleston. Bringing together bites prepared by the state’s most distinguished chefs + local favorites and top-shelf beverage offerings poured by some of the best in the industry, Opening Night celebrates all that makes Charleston so special. Grab a glass, boogie down to live music on a dance floor under the oaks, and join us in kicking off five flavorful days of fun. If you’ve been to Opening Night before, you know the dance floor is where the real fun begins.
