Charleston Wine & Food Festival Week Overview

Charleston Wine & Food Festival Week Overview

Therese and I had an absolutely fabulous time when we were in Charleston over the end of February and beginning of March for the city’s Wine & Food Festival.  It was our last visit to the city before we (gasp) move there to become residents in June, and we had two objectives to our visit: first, to enjoy the five days of the festival, and second, to make preparations for our June move in.

Since we were there on Sunday night, and the festival didn’t start until Wednesday night, that gave us time, in addition to meeting with contractors and shopping for furniture, to enjoy meals at some of Charleston’s great restaurants, outside of the festival.  I won’t go into any details here, since that is what the individual posts of each day’s adventures is all about.  Above you can get a bit of a preview of those events for which we were given wristbands – but not every event did that, and there was much much more.  Hope you enjoy reading about our Charleston adventures!
