Arts Festival Gala – Sweetgrass Soiree

May 2 @ 7:00 PM

North Charleston Performing Arts Center Entrance Hall, 5001 Coliseum Drive, North Charleston, SC 29418

The soirée begins with a steel drum serenade compliments of Charleston’s most prominent steel drum band, The Island Trio.

While enjoying a menu of Lowcountry favorites and the evening’s signature cocktail, the Sweetgrass Sipper, patrons will have an opportunity to meet this year’s festival design artist, Amiri Gueka Farris. Farris will be auctioning off an original piece and signing posters featuring his winning design, Gullah Islander Toss, during the event.

Entertainment during dinner service includes a lively performance by Adande African Drum & Dance Co. (7:00-7:30pm) and a shoe tapping, hand clapping program full of traditional Gullah songs, spirituals, and gospel tunes by renowned a cappella singing group, The Plantation Singers (7:30-8:15pm). Following the performances, guests can dance the night away to music byPlane Jane. This band is built to keep the crowd on its feet with an extensive catalog of exciting hits from the sixties to the present.

The Soiree is co-sponsored by North Charleston Magazine.
