    The Taste of the Market Common

    May 6, 11am – 4 pm

    On May 6th from 11 am until 4 pm, enjoy all the fine dining The Market Common has to offer at The Taste of The Market Common.

    Farmer’s Market on Deville Street

    May 6 – Sept 30, Saturdays, 10 am – 3 pm

    After experiencing a Taste of the Market Common, stop by the Farmer’s Market on Deville Street and take home some of the area’s fresh, locally grown produce and some of the area’s locally caught seafood for Sunday dinner. Stock up on baked goods, vegetables, fruits, flowers, plants, crafts, jams, jellies, pet treats and much more. The market operates every Saturday beginning May 6 through September 30 from 10am-3 pm. The Market Common and the Waccamaw Market Cooperative are the sponsors of the farmer’s market.

     Just a short drive south of The Market Common is Murrells Inlet. Once the lair of the infamous pirate Blackbeard, Murrells Inlet is now widely known as the ‘Seafood Capital of South Carolina’ and is an ideal place to explore the outdoors. A half-mile long marsh-walk offers spectacular views and a chance to watch fishing boats come in with the days’ catch, be it fresh fish, shrimp, clams, oysters, or crabs pulled from the surrounding waters.

    Murrells Inlet is also home to some of the nation’s finest golf courses. The area maintains the quaint feel of a true fishing village, unspoiled by concrete and high rises. It’s a place sought out by fisherman and naturalists, whispered about by antique collectors, and revered by art lovers and horticulturists. Home to Brook Green Gardens and the peaceful Marsh Walk, it’s the place where golfers come to relax, families come to dine, and snowbirds come to retire. It is a friendly community that you would be proud to call home.


    Blessing of the Inlet

    May 6, 9 am – 4 pm

    May 6th is also the 21st annual “Blessing of the Inlet” celebration hosted Belin Memorial United Methodist Church from 9:00 AM to 4:00 pm in Murrells Inlet.

This festival is highlighted by the “Blessing of the Inlet” Ceremony that begins at 11:30 am in front of Belin church (creek side). The blessing will be administered by the Reverend Dr. Mike Alexander and the Reverend Walter Cantwell.

    There is no admission or charge for parking, and the event will be held rain or shine. So come help us celebrate the Glory of God and all He has “blessed” us with!

    Brookgreen Gardens

    May 3, 10, 17 & 24, Every Wednesday

    Known worldwide for its beauty, Brookgreen Gardens showcases its extensive American sculpture collection with the best nature has to offer. Founded by Archer and Anna Huntington in 1931, Brookgreen Gardens was their gift to the community they loved. Today it is a National Historic Landmark with one of the most significant collections of figurative sculpture, by American artists, in an outdoor setting in the world. Visitors will always find something in bloom, no matter what the season and the zoo offers an up-close look at local wildlife.

    Directly across the highway lies Huntington Beach State Park, originally a part of the Huntington’s estate and now a must-see for the serious bird watcher. Huntington Beach State Park is considered one of the best birding locations along the East Coast.  This 2500 acre park also offers ocean-side camping, fishing and nature programs along the three miles of beach and hundreds of acres of salt marsh. This was also the summer residence of the Huntington’s and their castle-like home, Atalaya, is open for exploration daily.

    Every Wednesday in May – 3, 10, 17 & 24 (no 5/31), Ron Daise, Vice-president for Creative Education at Brookgreen Gardens and Gullah descendant, will present an entertaining and informative program about the culture, food, language, and history of the Gullah- Geechee people.

    The Gullah are a distinctive group of African-Americans whose origins lie along the coasts of South Carolina and Georgia, as well as the adjacent sea islands. They live in small farming and fishing units, having formed a tightly knit community that has survived slavery, the Civil War, and the emergence of modern American culture.

    Due to their geographic location and strong sense of community, the Gullah have been able to preserve more of their African cultural heritage than any other group of African Americans: they speak a creole language similar to the Krio of Sierra Leone, are skilled in the creation of African style handicrafts and enjoy a rich cuisine based primarily on rice. The origin and traditions of this group are an important piece of South Carolina’s historical puzzle. By exploring their history and development, one gains a fuller picture of South Carolina’s past. The program will be in the Wall Lowcountry Center Auditorium and is free with garden admission.


    3rd Annual Pops in the Park Concert

    May 20, 5:30 pm

    On May 20 at 5:30 pm, the North Myrtle Beach Community Band will proudly present the 3rd Annual Pops in the Park concert entitled: A Salute to America.

    The performance will feature a variety of iconic American masterpieces including elements of Swing, Modern Opera, and Patriotic music.

    The Stardusters BIG Band will open the program starting at 5:30 pm and then the North Myrtle Beach Community Band takes the stage to complete the performance.

    Bring a chair or blanket and come out to the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex Sandhills Bank Amphitheater on Saturday, May 20th at 5:30 pm to enjoy this FREE Concert.

    In the case of rain, the concert will be moved to the J. Bryan Floyd Community Center.
