Folly Beach Festivals & Events 2019

Last modified: 4 years ago

Folly is funky, is fun, and it has no shortage of reasons for a festival.  For real. Where else do they have a Bill Murray look-a-like competition and then race wildly into the freezing Atlantic ocean - in January?  Exactly!

And since the locals enjoy many of these festivals during the "off season," you should consider making your vacation plans accordingly (see Visit Folly in the Off Season).  Our townhome is just one block from all Center Street festivities.

Enjoy this calendar of events along with videos from past festivals:
