There are two ways to start planning your Spoleto Festival USA experience:
- Determine what shows and performers you want to see
- Determine what time period you will be in Charleston during the Festival.
The Festival runs for 17 days from Memorial Day weekend, starting Friday, May 26 through Sunday, June 11. There are Festival events every day during this period but there is a concentration of performances over the weekends. Not all events run throughout the Festival and some are one-night-only so check the dates of anything you particularly want to see.
To begin planning, we recommend either paging through our 54-page brochure or browsing online HERE, either by show or by schedule. If you have questions about specific performances, please call (843) 579-3100 to speak with a box office representative.
Festival venues are located in downtown Charleston and you are able to walk between most venues. If you are planning to attend multiple events on one day, ensure that you check the approximate running time and give yourself enough time to walk or travel between venues.
