These Fantastic Fall Festivals in Myrtle Beach Are Beyond Be-Leaf

The Irish Italian Festival

North Myrtle Beach likes to kick off the season with this unique and iconic event. The Irish Italian Festival celebrates all the things that make these two cultures so special. You’ll find food vendors serving up portions of corned beef or pastas, arts and crafts tents lining Main Street, and even an annual spaghetti-eating contest. There’s also a children’s area, making this an excellent option for families traveling with little ones. Admission is free, so make sure you take advantage of this awesome event!

Harvest Home Festival

For locals, attending the Harvest Home Festival at Brookgreen Gardens is a must. Held in early October, this event includes plenty of kid-friendly entertainment. You’ll find a pumpkin patch, a scarecrow-building contest, hayrides, and more. Plus, your family will be able to explore the grounds of the park and see the many animals that call Brookgreen Gardens home. Enjoy a day of pumpkins and crafts and treats — oh my!

Myrtle Beach Oktoberfest

If you’ve never celebrated Oktoberfest in Myrtle Beach, then you’re missing out. Every year, the city throws a fantastic celebration at Market Common that includes live entertainment, kid-friendly activities, games, and (of course) a wide variety of beers. There’s truly something for everyone here. Your children can get their faces painted while you sip a cold brew and browse the vendors in the park. Now, imagine all that while listening to the enthusiastic “oom-pah-pahs” of tubas from a traditional German band. What more could you want from a festival?

Art in the Park

For almost 50 years, Art in the Park has been giving local and regional artists a venue to display their impressive pieces. The Waccamaw Arts & Crafts Guild hosts this showcase four times a year, two of which are in the fall. Over 40 artists are featured each weekend, ranging from glassblowers to photographers, and everything in between. You never know what you may find when you visit.
