Ticket time is here for some of the many late fall and early spring events near our rental homes South Carolina. It pays to shop early – just like it does when searching for a beach house Charleston.
As I blogged about recently, tickets for the Wine + Food Festival went on sale a while back. Within hours of the ticket launch, many events had already sold out.
Tickets have just become available for another one of the big events happening near our Isle of Palms vacation rentals.
You can now purchase tickets for the 37th installment of SEWE – the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition.
SEWE draws more people to the Lowcountry than any other single event. It’s set for February 15th through the 17th, 2019. Get ready to spend a weekend enjoying some of the best wildlife art, crafts, demos and activities in the world. It’s all about “Celebrating Wildlife Art & The Sporting Life.”
SEWE is also quite good for kids staying in your Charleston beach house. Children ten and under are free. There are many events and activities perfect for educating AND entertaining young ones. They’re sure to get a kick out of the petting zoo and the Dock Dogs. Actually, there’s no age limit on enjoying both of those. They tend to be two of my favorites to check out at SEWE.
And then there’s the art. This is how SEWE describes it:
The Thrill of the Hunt: Sewe is nature’s gallery, where collectors and conservationists capture the experience through coveted works of art. For the avid sportsman, for the person who revels in the sporting lifestyle or even a simple moment unplugged, this weekend is the ultimate luxury – the pursuit and the prize. SEWE is…Nature. Curated.
SEWE recently announced the official poster and featured work of art, which you can see in the image above. Entitled, “Little Havoc,” this painting by Lou Pasqua shows a Boykin Spaniel rushing a covey of quail.
By the way, the Boykin Spaniel is the official dog of South Carolina. So when you’re here staying in one of our SC vacation rentals, keep an eye peeled for the state canine!
You can read more about Lou and his work here.
Here are some specs about what to expect at SEWE going on next February near our rental homes South Carolina:
- Five downtown venues, all convenient to our beach house rentals Charleston SC;
- 100 world-class artists;
- 300 exhibitors;
- Over 80 different events and activities good for the whole spectrum of ages staying in your luxury house on Isle of Palms.
You can order either general admission tickets or special VIP packages with insider access. The latter tend to go fast, just like our Isle of Palms luxury rentals. Here’s the official website, with the full schedule as well as online ticket purchasing.
As a special bonus, if you order general admission tickets now through October 31st, you’ll save 20% off the price by using the promo code WILD during checkout.
There are several good things about coming to the Lowcountry in the so-called offseason. Temps are generally moderate to downright delightful. The beach is less crowded. You’ll get the best rates on all our beach rentals Charleston. You’ll also get the best selection from among our portfolio of luxury beach house rentals SC.
So get those tickets while you can. And while you’re at it, call EP and secure one of our rental homes South Carolina as a festival home base for your friends and family.
