Spoleto USA: A World of Culture in Historic Charleston SC
Over 30 years ago, Spoleto USA began as the American counterpart to the Festival of Two Worlds held in Spoleto, Italy. Since then, the annual, 17-day festival has grown into a truly major cultural event, hosting over 100 world premieres and 93 American premieres.
Today, Charleston's Spoleto Festival USA continues to bring the world of culture to the Low Country, and there's something for almost every taste, including: Opera, Classical Music, Choral, Jazz, Dance, Theater and Visual Arts.
There’s an Artistic Buzz in the Air
The impact on Charleston and the Low Country is tremendous. Throughout the festival, restaurants, hotels and tourist attractions are crowded with visitors. The energy and excitement up and down Charleston's narrow streets is unlike any other time of the year.
For some, it's an inconvenience. For others, however, it's a time to put their Charleston pride on display! Each May/June, downtown residents have become accustomed to sharing their quiet southern town with the world. It's a time of entertaining, garden parties and home tours. This is when you truly see that culture is not only an event, but a lifestyle!
