Festivals in Myrtle BeachMyrtle Beach used to be a seasonal resort town, but things are a little different than they were just a few short years ago.
Now, no matter what time of year you visit, there's always something fun to do in Myrtle Beach. Visiting during one of our annual festivals can make your trip to the beach even more exciting as you mingle with locals who attend these popular events every year.
Each year the Spring season gets its jump start with the annual fun-filled St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival along Main Street and Ocean Boulevard in North Myrtle Beach.
This festival is followed by the CAN-AM Festival, commencing with receptions welcoming our Canadian visitors ("snowbirds") hosted by the Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach chambers. Events continue for days up and down the entire length of the Grand Strand.
In May there's the Blue Crab Festival in Little River, the bike festivals, and the crown jewel of all Myrtle Beach festivals, the Sun Fun Festival in June.
Bookmark us (save to favorites) and check back often as we update with current photos and information about the ongoing festivals along the Grand Strand as they happen!
