We were so excited to celebrate the dedication of Moultrie Playground, one of our favorite Parks venues from this year's Piccolo Spoleto Festival. But Mother Nature has other ideas, and we'll gladly flag the new date in our planner. Moultrie Playground Ribbon Cutting and Celebration now set for September 24.

📣ATTN: We’ve made the hard decision to postpone tomorrow’s dedication of the Moultrie Playground. The weather forecast is unsettled enough that we’d rather not risk a washout of what we want to be a fun time for all.

🗓 We’ve tentatively reset the dedication for Friday, October 7th. Fingers crossed for a sunny, perfect day!

We will notify everyone as soon final details are confirmed. Thanks for your understanding! 💚

We'll do this again soon, and while we're sad to wrap up the Festival on a somewhat soggy note, it sure has been a lot of fun being together in celebration of the arts and Charleston!

While the tide is going out, we still have a number of streets closed in the vicinity of Colonial Lake. Sadly, we need to make the decision to cancel this afternoon's World Music Cafe - Sunday, June 13 event, while our City peers continue with clean up and getting streets clear and safe to travel. We will be working with Peter Kfoury and World Music Cafe on a make-up performance later on this summer, so stay tuned for more.
