North and South Carolina have many spring festivals, and it’s no wonder with the beautiful weather. From barbecue and chowder festivals to craft and music festivals, both states have a bounty of Southern fun to offer up.

Get a bite of all the Queen City has to offer during the annual Taste of Charlotte June 10-12. This three-day festival covers five city blocks and features samples from more than 100 restaurants, live music, street performances, shopping and more. While enjoying all the tasty food and fun activities, be sure to stop at the AAA Insurance booth, too!  

Check out the Blue Ridge Mountains Barbecue & Music Festival on June 10 and 11. There is truly something for everyone at this festival. Although the barbecue competition draws a huge crowd, the craft fair, music and classic cars on display, pulls in plenty of people, too.  

The Spoleto Festival is definitely one to put on your list. It’s that good. For 39 years the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, has celebrated music and the arts. For 17 days and nights, the streets, churches and theaters are donned with jazz musicians, opera and choral singers, chamber music, dance, and symphony. While observing up and coming artists, the festival strives to offer the highest caliber of talent, while still celebrating contemporary innovation. This festival, held this year from May 27 to June 12, is known throughout the world. 

The Carolina Beach Music Festival in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, is one of the oldest beach music festivals in the United States. This all-day festival on the beach is hosted by the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce and is always held on the first Saturday in June. It features the best beach music, so be sure to take off your shoes and dance the day away.
