The weather may cool off during the autumn months, but the Grand Strand events calendar will still bring the heat — and even better, with thinner crowds than those seen in the Myrtle Beach area during the peak summer season.
Looking to plan a fun fall getaway for your beach-loving vacation crew? Consider these highlights from the autumn events calendar on the Grand Strand:
Found just off Highway 17 in The Dunes area of Myrtle Beach, singer/producer/entrepreneur Calvin Gilmore’s Carolina Opry performance venue is home to a busy schedule of renowned live performances throughout the year. And its namesake Carolina Opry variety show brings together 35 of the nation’s most talented performers to present an award-winning mix of high-energy music, comedy and dance.
Located at popular Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment complex Broadway at the Beach, Legends in Concert offers up live performances from a collection of tribute artists who look and sound just like some of yesterday’s and today’s most beloved musical acts. For the presentation’s fall run, the tribute artists taking the stage will belt out top hits from stars including Elvis Presley, Rod Stewart, Barbara Streisand, Stevie Wonder and Tina Turner. Show tickets can be secured in advance on the venue’s website.
Myrtle Beach Jeep Jam
October 29-31 – Former Myrtle Square Mall, Myrtle Beach
Get ready, Jeep lovers — thousands of Jeep enthusiasts from around the nation (and over 2,000 Jeeps) are expected to roll into Myrtle Beach for the fourth annual edition of this 3-day festival. The fun activities on tap will include an off-road obstacle course, a car show, beach crawls, nightly parties, the Vendor Valley vendor booths, raffles and more — with most of the action taking place in the heart of Myrtle Beach and just over a block from the Atlantic Ocean!
Taste of the Town
November 2 – Myrtle Beach Convention Center, Myrtle Beach
Whatever flavors your vacation crew is craving, they’re sure to be well-represented at the 38th Annual Taste of the Town. This highly anticipated event sees a collection of some of the area’s top chefs and restaurants cooking up their most popular and tasty dishes for attendees to sample. Food tickets are just $1 each, and the offerings are available for between one and five tickets, depending on the eatery and the entrée/side chosen. It’s a great way to take a culinary tour of the Grand Strand in a single spot, and 2021 will see a new option available — online ordering and curbside pickup.
Brew at the Zoo
November 6 – Brookgreen Gardens, Murrells Inlet
A fall favorite up and down the Grand Strand, Brew at the Zoo sees beer, animal and music lovers from near and far converge on the beautiful Brookgreen Gardens botanical and sculpture gardens for a fun and flavorful evening. Attendees get to sample the sudsy offerings of 15 different breweries from the region and as far away as Texas, Michigan, Oregon and California, just to name a few, and food vendors will be on hand, too. All the proceeds from this year’s event will go to benefit a new Red Wolf habitat at Brookgreen’s Lowcountry Zoo, and to keep the party rocking, the Paul Grimshaw Band will bring its live tunes to the event stage.
The above, of course, isn’t a complete listing of the events and activities scheduled for the coming autumn months in the Myrtle Beach area — just a few of the highlights.
