TASTE OF FOLLY: JAN 18-19, 2019

Published on February 8, 2019 by espaid

Folly loves a good festival, and starting on Friday, Jan 18, the island on the "Edge of America" will host the Taste of Folly. Over the past several years, many new restaurants have opened on the island, and each one will be showcasing its unique cuisine.

If you’ve never been to a festival here, well.. it’s a lot of fun. Center Street, which runs through town, closes off so locals and visitors can stroll and sample the dishes offered at the food booths. You’ll see families with kids, college students, hippies, surfers, older couples, and lots of interesting local personalities. Think Mayberry with a funky twist.

The event kicks off at 7 pm Friday at Tides Folly Beach with the Cannon Distillery Cocktail Competition where Folly restaurants will be showcasing their cocktails. It’s $20 in advance; $25 at the door, which includes a free 5 ounce sample of all cocktails. Vote for your favorite.

On Saturday, January 19 from 10-4, head to Center Street, ($5 in advance or pay at the door). Sample the great food, watch cooking demonstrations, listen to live music (they’ll be three stages). In addition, there’s a chili cook off, an oyster shucking contest, and a hot dog eating contest. Kids will enjoy free inflatables, culinary-inspired arts and crafts, and pasta making. Oh, and there’s a “Server Olympics” - watch Folly waiters perform their duties while maneuvering through obstacle courses.

We have been hosting guests since 2003 when we bought our first place on Folly Beach, near Charleston, SC. It was something we kind of fell into. One day our friends mentioned a place they bought on Folly and invited us to stay. We headed there during a cold weekend in February and were wowed by the funky island and the amazing view of the river and marsh. The price was low and we decided to buy one as well and rent it out. We have added two more places in the Florida Panhandle and have not looked back.
