Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival

Bluffton South Carolina has a reputation for being a “sleepy little southern town on the river”, and someplace that a lot of folks drive through to get its more famous neighbor, Hilton Head Island.

And while we LOVE Hilton Head, we can tell you that Bluffton is not only one of the most charming, colorful, and beautifully situated towns you will ever have the pleasure of visiting, but it has a rollicking week-long event that is chock-full of seafood, history, culture, and entertainment… with a unique lowcountry spin:  The Historic Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival, which runs from Oct 10-18.
