Charleston celebrates the holidays in style and has become known internationally as a holiday destination. In downtown Charleston, the festivities begin with an extended Holiday Farmers Market and Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony in Marion Square.
Charleston’s celebrations continue through the season on and off the water with a boat parade, special holiday markets and family-oriented activities, performances and decorations that capture the spirit of the season for everyone in the community. For example, Chanukah and Kwanza are celebrated in the square with candle lighting and celebration. Look for events in the surrounding communities and islands.
