It’s alive! We’d say blood, sweat and tears went into this beautiful beast of a festival, but let’s be honest, we’re in Charleston after all – it was mostly sweat that went into CAF. Sweat and coffee. Okay, sweat and coffee and lots of rambling group emails. 

What began as JAIL BREAK | Music & Arts Festival, has now become something bigger and better: Charleston Arts Festival. The idea was to make JAIL BREAK grow up a little – to more fully represent this town and to give more opportunities to artists and audiences to create, interact and learn. And to celebrate! Don’t worry, we’re still having a party at the end of it all. 

It’s just our first year but we think it’s going to be great. Check back as we unveil more official events and tell you about the artists and supporters behind the scenes.
