FestivAll 2011

FestivALL Charleston 2011 is back in full swing this year! Featuring dozens of opportunities to enjoy the very best of Charleston art, music, dance, theatre, and so much more — there is sure to be something for everyone at FestivAll!

As a celebration of arts and music in Charleston, FestivAll began in 2005 with the support of Mayor Danny Jones and the Charleston City Council. The event’s initial blueprint called for the inclusion of not just traditional art but popular art as well — covering a varied array of visual arts, music, theater, dance and film.

This all-encompassing vision continues to this day, with activities that range from antiques fairs, street art projects, public musical performances, theatrical performances, and even folk art and children’s art exhibits.
