Summer is in full swing in the Lowcountry, and the season’s evenings are ideal for a night of Shaggin’ on the Cooper. Come out and take advantage of the beautiful spring weather with live music and stunning evening views on the end of one of the longest piers in the southeast. Shaggin’ on the Cooper hits Mount Pleasant with “Permanent Vacation” on June 19th. Join us on the 1,250-foot long Mount Pleasant Pier, located at the foot of the Arthur Ravenel, Jr. Bridge. Gates open for each performance at 7 p.m. and music begins at 8. Bring the whole family (ages 3 and up) or come with that special someone to unwind after a long week. Not a dancer? Come enjoy the music on the pier and watch the sunset over Charleston Harbor while sipping your favorite beverage, available for purchase on-site (no outside alcohol or coolers permitted).
A limited number of tickets will be sold for these events so arrive early! Admission is $10 per event. Tickets will be available beginning at 4 p.m. the day of the event in the Mount Pleasant Pier gift shop and at the gate. Shaggin’ fans on Folly Beach may also wish to take part in the Folly Beach Fishing Pier’s Moonlight Mixers series, held on select Fridays throughout the spring, summer and fall.
