  1. We keep hearing about The Taste of Charleston and would really like to attend. We are from Ontario Canada and are trying to book accommodation and airfare for this event but would like to know that we can get tickets. When will tickets be available? How can we purchase them? Thanks, Jill

    • Jill, you’re in luck! Tickets are on sale now!!! You can click the Taste of Charleston page on our site to see more info and ticket options. There is also a tab for lodging in the Mt Pleasant area. Let us know if you need anything else – and we’re looking forward to seeing you!

    • The tickets for each Saturday and Sunday are $15 in advance (on the Taste of Charleston Page on this website) or $20 at the gate.

    • The food varies from $4 – $6 per portion. Each restaurant will have several featured items on their menu for the day.

    • Hi Nancy – yes, once inside you will purchase as many food/drink tickets as you need and use them to select the items you’d like to sample. We try to keep the prices and the portion sizes smaller so you will have enough room to sample lots of different dishes. Bon Appetit!

    • For the Main Events Saturday and Sunday, gates open at 10:30 and close at 5pm. We always suggest you get there a little early to allow time to park and beat the crowds.

  2. Will you be able to tour the plantation, house, and take a tour of Boone Hall plantation on that Sunday Oct. 9 during the Taste of Charleston event? Just wondering. Thanks. Shayne

    • The Plantation will be closed to outside visitors but Taste of Charleston event-goers will have the opportunity to tour the house for a fee. Not sure what that fee will be but should be minimal.

      • Thanks for the information. Will other parts of plantation be open as well such as the tour of the farmland and the enactment people in the houses, barns, etc. Sorry for all the questions but I am planning a trip for several people and just wanted to find out. Thanks..
