Upcoming Events

Make sure to mark your calendar for these signature Edisto Island events.

Turtle Tide Art Project

The turtles arrive as blank slates before local artists transform each one into their own unique artistic creations. After the “Reveal” event in May/June, the turtles then take up residence in Edisto over Turtle Season (May-October).

Movies In The Park

Free movie night on the 2nd Wednesday of each month June-September at Bay Creek Park! The movie starts around dusk and the gates open an hour before that. Bring your own chairs and blankets.

SC Governor’s Cup Edisto Invitational Billfish Tournament

Each year the South Carolina Governor’s Cup Billfishing Series hosts its final leg on Edisto Beach. The tournament is designed to promote the state’s bill fishing tournament industry, increase coastal tourism, and encourage the conservation of ocean resources through the tagging and release of billfish.
