Because I love to eat, the annual taste of Charleston event at Boone Hall Plantation is my one of my favorite Charleston events. Taste of Charleston has been named one of the “top 20 events in the southeast” by the Southeastern Tourism Society. And when asked visitors of Charleston name the food and the history as the main reasons they visit the area.
This year the event will be held October 10-12. This will be the 28th year Charleston has had this award winning event. The main event will be at Historic Boone Hall plantation, with two other events including a “Iron Chef” competition being held Downtown. Forty of Charleston’s best restaurants will be showcased at the event.
The main event will be held on Sunday October 12. Advance tickets ($10) can also be purchased at all Charleston area Applebee’s Restaurants, the downtown Visitors Center, or by visiting Boone Hall’s web site Day-of tickets can be purchased at the event for $12.00. Food tickets will be sold in $1.00 increments at the event. Souvenir “Taste” t-shirts will also be available for purchase. Free parking inside Boone Hall Plantation. Rain or shine. No pets, no coolers, and no tailgating, please.
