Fall Season is Festival Time in Myrtle Beach

The kids are back in school, you are back at work, and summer vacation is fading into a distant memory. Before you settle back into the daily grind, take some time to unwind at Paradise Resort this fall and soak up the fun of the Myrtle Beach’s fall festival season.

A long weekend trip to Myrtle Beach is just what the doctor ordered, and staying at Paradise is the ideal location for a relaxing retreat and visiting all the fun events. In fact, Paradise is midway between Market Common and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, two of the most popular places for festivals this fall. Food, music and fun are only blocks away.

If not for the cool ocean breeze, guests at paradise could probably follow their noses to the big Labor Day weekend event – the 10th Annual Beach Boogie & BBQ Festival at Market Common. Cooking teams gather to compete for the top prize in the Official South Carolina BBQ Championship, but the real winners are the attendees, who get to taste the pulled pork, chicken wings and other goodies from the grills. A beer and wine garden, car show, live music, children's activities and more are included in the festival lineup.

Market Common takes on a more international flavor later in the fall. The 12th Annual Irish Italian Festival comes to Valor Park on Sept. 26-27, celebrating the heritage of both nationalities in one fun event. Two weeks later, the Seventh Annual Oktoberfest honors German culture and some of its chief exports – beer, bratwurst and music.
