Things to Do

You’ll have plenty of downtime during this crazy weekend. A lot of it will probably be spent hanging out, exploring and walking the streets of Charleston. Just in case we have a few fun things planned for you that you are invited to. Remember to pace yourself. It’s a marathon not a sprint.

Friday Night Party

When: Friday May 26th
Time: 7 to 10 pm
Where: College of Charleston Courtyard
What: BYOB and bring a sides, chips or dessert to share if you wish. The Council will provide some munchies as well. Continue our annual tradition of The Abominable Hootenanny so bring your guitar, uke, harmonica, etc.. Drop your bags and come hang with your band mates as we kick off our Spoleto weekend. We’ll be hanging out in the courtyard playing guitar, singing, making last minute costume adjustments, painting toenails…No one parties like an Abominable parties.

Still up for an adventure? Join the after party at Tommy Condons (160 Church St, Charleston, SC 29401). Charleston! We’re here!

Beach Trip!

When: Sunday May 28th
Time: Several hours after the Patriotic Gig
Where: Sullivan’s Island (2210 Middle Street Sullivan’s Island, SC 29482)
What: Bring a blanket, picnic snacks, tunes, and your favorite beach gear! It can be windy so bring warm clothes, especially if you plan to stay until dark. Mother nature provides the primary bathroom facility, so plan accordingly. Warning: Alcohol is not allowed on the beach (steep fine)!


From the Days Inn, turn LEFT onto Meeting Street.

MERGE onto US-17 N/Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge toward MT PLEASANT.

MERGE onto SC-703 toward Sullivan’s Island.

FOLLOW until it dead-ends at a Texaco station.

Turn RIGHT and make your first LEFT. Entrance to beach at the end of the road (it may be marked Station 22).

PARK where you can; take the beach access to the end of the path and turn left down the beach.

Walk until you see an Abom. If you don’t see an Abom, you are probably the first one there, so find a spot and have fun!

Sunday Night Party

When: Sunday May 27th
Time: 7 to 10 pm
Where: College of Charleston Courtyard
What: Don’t spend your last night packing! Join the party in the courtyard for a singalong and wind down with the band before the season finally ends. We know you don’t really want to take home the drinks you have left over. The Council will be providing munchies. Celebrate with us!
