In its milestone second iteration, Charleston Arts Festival will once again celebrate cross-discipline collaboration and seek to challenge artists and attendees.
Charleston Arts Festival 2017 will feature Lowcountry luminaries working across artistic genres including music, dance, visual arts, and spoken word to create a multi-week festival at venues across the Peninsula while celebrating all things creative.
