The Edisto Blackwater Boogie – Celebrating the Edisto

The Edisto Blackwater Boogie is an outdoor festival taking place at Givhans Ferry State Park from October 11th-13th, 2019—a full moon weekend! Join us for the very first annual Edisto Blackwater Boogie.

There will be a variety of outdoor activities as well as performances from local musicians (lineup pending), food and drink trucks, kid-friendly activities, and more. Activities include canoeing, kayaking, bonfire jam sessions, guided tours, and musical performances by local musicians. Food and drink trucks will be on-site as well as artisan vendors. There will also be several fun activities for the kids!

The Edisto Blackwater Boogie is a weekend-long event. Camping is encouraged! Immerse yourself in the experience by camping out under the stars. Tent and camper sites are available from the Givhans Ferry State Park. Camping at Givhans Ferry State Park is available for the full weekend.

Tickets go on sale August 1st. Early bird prices ($25 for Friday, $30 for Saturday, or $45 for the weekend) are available until September 15th. After September 15th, tickets will be $35 for Friday, $40 for Saturday, or $55 for the weekend. Tickets for children ages 6-16 are $5. Kids 5 and under are free. The event is rain or shine. In the event of a mandatory evacuation, the event will be canceled and all tickets refunded. Tickets are nonrefundable, but they are transferable.

The Edisto Blackwater Boogie aims to “Celebrate the Edisto.” Funds raised from the festival will support improvements to the park and future Edisto Blackwater Boogies.

Several different members of the community have already pledged their support of the event, but the more support we get, the better able we are to make improvements to Givhans Ferry State Park and fund even better future festivals. All sponsorships and donations will be received by Summerville Rotary, a 501 (c)(3) Nonprofit Organization. Consider supporting a cause which is not only good but will also provide fun and entertainment to hundreds of people.

      Frankie, that is because they need to be booked through our ticketing website. If you follow the ticket link you can get a campsite there.
