Ya Gotta Regatta!! This is a phrase that so many Charlestonians have been screaming for years, especially after the Regatta was disbanded in 2009. To everyone’s delight, The Charleston Sternwheel Regatta returns June 30!!
Fan favorites such as the anything that floats race, sternwheel races, carnival and the big-name concerts. The first year back, the concerts include Everclear, Fastball, The Four Tops and The Spinners, Martin McBride and 80’s heartthrob Rick Springfield.
In addition to the nostalgia, many new events are happening. This year will bring The Wheelwash Craft Beer Festival, a kid zone at Magic Island which includes some skating and BMX exhibitions at the skate park and a comedy showcase.
