Charleston In September


Sunset view of Charleston's Waterfront Park.

In September, the weather in Charleston and its vicinity is still hot, tempting many people to the beach to take advantage of the warm water and the last weeks of summer sun.

The Labor Day weekend marks the end of the summer vacation season proper, and the resumption of Charleston’s busy events calendar.

Charleston’s Lowcountry Jazz Festival and the bigger MOJA Arts Festival toward the end of the month are September highlights. Other events include Charleston’s second Restaurant Week of the year and the tail end of the city’s regular summer music and dance evenings.
