If you’re staying in one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals or planning to be in one soon, take note: festival season is fully upon us.  And if you want tickets, you’d best get a move on.

The box office for Piccolo Spoleto officially opens this coming Monday, May 2nd.  They just announced the festival lineup this week.

The schedule is available online, and there’s a myriad of great things to choose from.  As usual, it’s actually a bit of over-choice.   Here’s a link to the 92 page Piccolo Festival schedule:  https://issuu.com/piccolospoleto/docs/ps16-final-web?e=11971039/35048076

You never know what kind of up-and-coming talent you might discover at Piccolo.  Why, a decade ago, a young and relatively unknown comic named Amy Schumer was the warm-up act for Isaac Witty in a Piccolo Spoleto event.  Fast forward a few years, during which she won an Emmy for her multi-season series on Comedy Central, wrote and starred in a major movie and wowed HBO with her special… and this past Thursday night she was back in Charleston, headlining her own show at the North Charleston Coliseum.

Piccolo runs concurrently with Spoleto, and this year it’s Friday, May 27th through Sunday, June 12th.

Spoleto season is a very popular time for beach house rentals Charleston SC, be they Isle of Palms vacation rentals or Folly Beach rentals Charleston.  A Charleston beach house is an easy drive from Spoleto or Piccolo events  –  most of which take place on the downtown peninsula  –  while also providing you with a beach vacation at the same time.  If you are interested in one of our SC vacation rentals, you’d best call ASAP.

Spoleto tickets have been available for some time, as I’ve covered in THIS BLOG.  But Piccolo, which boasts many more individual events, only unveils the schedule and opens ticket sales much closer to the festival itself  –  in other words, now.
