Celebrate Mother’s Day weekend with a trip to the 34th annual Bluffton Village Festival. The Mayfest will be held on Saturday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Calhoun Street, where history meets Lowcountry festivity. The “people’s festival” is coordinated by the Rotary Club of Bluffton as a celebration of the artisans and musicians that gift the area with their talents and to give families a chance to be exposed to the arts.
No local festival would be complete without local vendors supplying their food: Gullah inspired, homemade treats like peach ice cream, crab cakes, shrimp burgers and shrimp salad sandwiches. You never know what you’ll find among the honey, preserves, Ulmer bread and shortcake. Although there will be over 100 vendors, if you’ve been to any of the Bluffton Village Festivals in the past, you know they sell out quickly, so plan to get there early!
The festival is made for those who love to mosey under the oak trees, eat with friends and chat on a beautiful spring day. Admission is free and so is parking if you shuttle from Red Cedar Elementary, available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. And don’t forget the 24th annual Ugly Dog contest at 1p.m. on the front porch of the Sprouts store. Kids of all ages love those ugly mugs!
