Events and Festivals in Myrtle Beach
- Oktoberfest German Festival (September): Even though Oktoberfest is first and foremost an occasion for all those eligible to drink, the Myrtle Beach Oktoberfest has turned it into a family event. There are pumpkin patches for the kids to decorate their pumpkins, face painting and other such fun activities whilst the adults treat themselves to some German food and a huge collection of Oktoberfest beer.
- South Carolina International Chili Cook-Off (October): This is one event you really don’t want to miss. All you chili lovers flock down to the Grand Stand area to taste chili in foods and forms you could never have imagined. Make it a family day as they have a lot of other fun filled activities other than just tasting chili.
- Dickens Christmas Show & Festival (November): “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens is by far the best Christmas play to ever leave its mark on the readers. The people at Leisure Time Unlimited have surely capitalized on this and come up with a unique arts and crafts show based on this beloved play. Even though the festival is held during the city’s off season, is attracts a crowd of over 15,000 and is a quite the required boost to local hospitality establishments.
