Autumn is such a beautiful time of year along the Grand Strand, with less crowded beaches, cooler temperatures and many festivities for all to enjoy. Here in Myrtle Beach, we know how to celebrate the fall season, with several festivals, fireworks and fun. As a guest at The Strand Resort, you will get to first-hand experience this excitement, just a short drive from the resort.
Do you have a taste for the best food, wine, spirits, arts and entertainment, then you won’t want to miss the 7th Annual Coastal Uncorked Food and Wine Festival. This festival aims to shine a light on all that makes the culinary scene along the Grand Strand unique. With more restaurants per capita than any other city in the state, Myrtle Beach is home to more than 1,700 dining establishments.
The Myrtle Beach Hospitality Association hosts this event each fall and this year the festival will help wrap up the summer season, and kick off the fall, during Labor Day Weekend in September. Located only a short distance from The Strand Resort the events will take place at the Pavilion Park Central at Broadway at the Beach. Here is a listing of daily events for you to plan on attending:
