Welcome to the 37th Annual North Charleston Arts Fest! This five-day event uses performing, visual, and literary arts to engage and inspire patrons from all walks of life. As Mayor of the City of North Charleston, I am proud that it offers our residents and visitors a number of unique opportunities to experience a vast array of arts and cultural offerings that are both affordable and accessible.

The Cultural Arts staff has introduced some big changes to this year’s festival programming. They, along with other City departments and community partners, have worked hard to produce what I believe is one of the best North Charleston Arts Fests yet.

The diversity and the inclusiveness of the Arts Fest is a point of pride for the City of North Charleston. I encourage you, your friends, and family to take advantage of the many fantastic performances, exhibits, and activities happening May 1-5. There’s truly something for everyone.

Sincerely,
R. Keith Summey
Mayor
