Myrtle Beach Festivals 2022


Apache Pier, Myrtle Beach, SC.

Myrtle Beach’s festivals are a big part of what attracts millions of visitors to the Grand Strand area every year.

In May, huge biking events draw hundreds of thousands of bikers to Myrtle Beach, with another, quieter biking event in the fall. Annual music festivals include events devoted to bluegrass, jazz and country music.

Myrtle Beach and neighboring communities such as Little River host popular shrimp, crab and seafood festivals that draw tens of thousands of visitors from across the southeast to sample the best of the lowcountry’s seafood. Other festivals throughout the year include big car shows, arts and crafts shows, holiday lights shows, heritage festivals, and more.
