There is virtually something for everyone when it comes to festivals and events in the Pawleys Island area of South Carolina! Starting the new year made me think about some of my favorite upcoming events in Georgetown and Pawleys Island, so I thought you might like to save the dates for some of these. I’ll be posting more specifics about each one later, but here is some information you add to your calendar…
March 1, 2014 Winyah Bay Heritage Festival.
Sponsored by the Georgetown County Historical Society, this event celebrates Winyah Bay’s Rich History. In the early 1900’s, affluent northerners flocked to this area to hunt ducks, deer, quail and hogs, and also to fish with local sportsmen and landowners. This festival pays honor to that southern sporting heritage with hunting, fishing, sporting art, dogs, decoys and firearms. www.winyahbayfestival.org
The Plantation Tour features plantations and town houses in and around Georgetown that are privately owned and graciously shared with the Episcopal Church Women of Prince George, Winyah Parish, once per year. A different group of homes is on tour each day. Home baked goods, original framed art from local artists, books from the Georgetown Historical Society and the award-winning cookbook, Plantation Tours and Tastes, will be offered for sale. Advance ticket orders are recommended. www.pgwinyah.com/plantation-tours
April 5, 2014 Long Bay Symphony Pops Orchestra – An Evening of Motown
“Get Ready” to feel the groove with the cool sounds of Motown presented by renowned tribute artists performing live with the Long bay Symphony Pops Orchestra. Relive the magic of the timeless, soulful sounds of the Temptations, the Supremes, the Four Tops and more, with theatrical panache and inspired arrangements.

The Tams are set to perform at this year’s Pawleys Pavilion Reunion! Memories of the popular Pawleys Pavilion are rekindled every May and new “memories” built. Whether or not you were fortunate enough to be a part of the “Party of Pawleys Island”, this is your chance. Mark your calendars and help build simple, decent and affordable homes for God’s people in need as this event benefits Habitat for Humanity in Georgetown County. www.facebook.com/PawleysPavilionReunion
