South Carolina Low Country in November
Fall in the Low Country means festival season and celebrating the drop in humidity and temperature. From Beaufort to Hilton Head, Cora Bett Thomas Realty has compiled a list of events that you should add to your calendar for the month of November:
Friday, November 1st - Sunday, November 3rd: Pat Conroy Literary Festival
An opportunity to honor Pat Conroy's legacy as a student, teacher and mentor, the Fourth Annual Pat Conroy Literary Festival is a captivating weekend of panel discussions, readings, book signings, performances, film screenings, tours, and social gatherings. There is an array of presenters on topics galore from storytelling to poem writing. Be sure to check out their website for a full list of events and locations for each.
Friday, November 8th - Saturday, November 9th: Hilton Head Oyster Festival
Steamed, fried, or stewed… The Hilton Head Oyster Festival is the perfect excuse to eat all the oysters your heart desires! In addition to oysters, there will be live entertainment, a kid-friendly zone, and a lounge to cheer on your favorite football team. If oysters aren't your thing, there's plenty of other options to eat, but don't miss out on all the fun at Shelter Cove Community Park.
Saturday, November 9th: Hilton Head Lantern Parade
Take some time, get creative, and illuminate life on the island! This year, artist Chantelle Rytter encourages all of Hilton Head Island and its visitors to make their own light-up lanterns. The goal: to see the whole community as "playful volumes of light marching down the beach together"! Be a part of the parade or watch from afar. Lineup begins at 6 pm at the Alder Lane Beach Access, and the parade kicks off at 7 pm traveling north along South Forest Beach to Coligny Beach Park.
Every Thursday: Bluffton Farmers Market
The Bluffton Farmers Market, under the moss-draped oaks of Calhoun Street, is the place to be each Thursday afternoon in November from 1-6 pm. Fresh and locally grown fruits, veggies, flowers, and plants are sold. Don't forget about the fresh catch of the day, feast Lowcountry style after buying fresh-caught seafood from the market. Families listen to live entertainment and soak in the crisp fall air while perusing delicious tables of local goods.
