The Best Fall Events & Activities in Charleston

The Best Fall Events & Activities in Charleston

Visit Charleston in Fall for Mild Temperatures, Fewer Crowds, and Tons of Fall Fun

A historic city with modern touches, Charleston boasts an incredible culinary and bar scene, high-end shopping along King Street, and endless historic tours to keep the history buffs in your group entertained. It’s an exciting city to visit any time of year, especially in the Fall. As the summer season winds down, the weather cools, and the crowds return home. While you won’t see traditional fall foliage, you’ll love the mild temperatures that allow exploration without the heat of summer. Charleston is such a great place for walking tours and strolling down historic streets, and it’s much more comfortable to do that with slightly cooler weather. 

At night, it’s perfect sweater weather. There’s just something about strolling through cobblestone streets on a crisp evening, admiring the pumpkins and fall decor gracing the stoops of Charleston’s historic homes before returning to your own Charleston vacation rental. In fact, with such a storied history of haunting in Charleston, the fun and spooky Halloween decorations around the city add a little extra autumnal magic. 



Fall Events in Charleston


During fall in Charleston, SC, there are so many fun events. From culinary to cultural, consider planning trips around these popular festivals.


Charleston Restaurant Week

For 10 days in September, the finest restaurants in Charleston and its neighboring communities offer special menus, three-course meals, deals, and discounts. If you’re a self-proclaimed foodie, you won’t want to miss Restaurant Week. Whether you want to sample Lowcountry, seafood, Thai, Mexican, American, Italian, or Southern cuisine, there will be a menu that suits your fancy. If you’re visiting Charleston in September, be sure to check out menus and make reservations in advance. If you’re staying in a Charleston vacation rental with Stay Duvet, we'll help point you in the right direction.






Held at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church on King Street, Oktoberfest Charleston is hosted each year in mid-October. The highly anticipated event is filled with live music, authentic German cuisine, a biergarten with local craft beers, and a kids’ zone. You’ll love the beer, brats, and dancing, while the little ones can enjoy soft pretzels and free activities, including a bounce castle, corn hole, yard games, and face painting. 




Riverfront Revival

Live at Riverfront Park in October, Riverfront Revival is an incredible two-day music festival featuring live music from over 15 different artists and tons of delicious regional eats. Paying homage to country music and South Carolina’s Lowcountry, the event is curated (and, for the last two years, has been headlined) by country music superstar, Darius Rucker. The festival runs for two days across two stages in North Charleston with the goal of inspiring love for music and the community. 





Harvest Festival

In early November, Johns Island County Park serves as the location for Harvest Festival, a one-day-only opportunity to dance to live music from local bluegrass bands, decorate pumpkins, take a hayride, try your hand at archery, stroll through the crafters market, and enjoy old fashioned Southern festival foods like barbeque, kettle korn, and more. It’s such a fun family event – and free for kids 12 and under. Johns Island is conveniently located near our Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, and Folly Beach vacation rentals.





At Stay Duvet, we have Charleston SC vacation rentals to suit every type of visit. Whether you’re planning a romantic weekend getaway, an unforgettable bachelor or bachelorette party, a golf weekend with friends, or some time to rest and recharge near the beach, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Charleston activities in the fall to inspire your next trip.
