The Charleston Margarita Festival celebrates its second year at the beautiful Brittlebank Park with an even bigger bash than last year. Enjoy margaritas from 20 of Charleston’s best bars & restaurants, plus food, music, entertainment, and more! You’ll want to get your tickets fast, though, because last year’s event sold out quicker than a frozen margarita brain freeze.

Blue Steel Promotions is partnering with hard sparkling water company Bon & Viv for the quintessential summertime bar crawl.

Your ticket gets you drink specials, like $4 Bon & Vivs, $3 Bud Lights, and more; plus, a portion of all ticket sales will support the Charleston Animal Society.
