Main Stage

The premier stage of the Festival, it’s literally in the center of all the action. The Main Stage will be packed with talent all weekend.

Riverfront Lawn Stage

Back by popular demand, the Riverfront Lawn Stage will be adjacent to the restaurants serving up shrimp & grits and will feature favorite bands from throughout the coast.


Skeet House Stage

A crowd favorite, this stage is situated in the heart of the Artists Market on Pier Road. Located on the front porch of the historic Skeet House, this stage is the perfect place to sit with friends and take a break from the hustle and bustle of the Festival.
