There is very little parking on Bowens Island – as such, we encourage you to car pool or park and take the shuttle.

There will be very little parking onsite – we ask that you park at the Piggly Wiggly on Folly Road and walk the amazing trail or take one of our shuttles, that will run every twenty minutes between 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

It’s a GREEN event!! In order to reduce waste – we ask you to bring your own fork, plate and napkin!

Coming in from out of town? Charleston has a variety of accommodations to suit your needs, 20 minutes from Bowens Island. Please visit the Charleston Visitor Bureau for things to do and places to stay. You can also rent housing in Folly Beach.
