It was announced back in September that Charleston Wine + Food, one of the region’s premier food festivals, will be moving their culinary village to Riverfront Park in North Charleston from Marrion Sqaure in downtown Charleston. Located on the banks of the Cooper River, the public park and former naval base is also home to the High Water Festival, a yearly music festival curated by Shovels & Rope. This year, Charleston Wine + Food will be bringing their own musical affair to the park with Alabama soul band St. Paul and the Broken Bones, folky Boston pop-rock outfit Lake Street Dive, and the dynamic Grammy-nominated Louisiana musical collective, Tank and the Bangas.
The concerts, taking place on March 4-5, are a part of the larger food and wine experience at Charleston Wine + Food. Billed as NightCaps, the concerts will accompany the full culinary village experience that includes access to four hours of sampling food and beverages with chef demos and interactive activations with the purchase of a CV day or weekend pass at Riverfront Park. You can also purchase tickets exclusively for the NightCap live music experience on Friday night (March 4) to see Lake Street Dive or Saturday night (March 5) to see St. Paul & The Broken Bones and Tank and the Bangas. The NightCap concert tickets won’t offer the four hours of sampling, but will offer a curated selection of food and beverages with a new pavilion area filled with food trucks and vendors accessible to the public.
Taking place March 2-6, 2022 with over 100 events in and around greater Charleston, the festival has welcomed nearly 335,000 guests and generated more than $112.2 million in economic impact over 16 years, according to the festival’s website.
Tickets to the NightCap concerts start at $85 for general admission and $135 for VIP. Check out more on the CV (Culinary Village) Passes and the full schedule of events at Charleston Wine + Food 2022.
