Festival of Houses and Gardens
For more than 70 years, many of the residents of Charleston have opened the doors of their homes to the public as a part of a month-long charity event that raises fund for the Historic Charleston Foundation. A number of events associated with the festival vary each year, from craft beer tastings to lectures on Charleston’s history, but the centerpiece is the tours of private homes. Ten or 12 houses are open to the public daily either in the afternoon or evening. The longer you stay, the more houses you can tour.
