Spoleto Finale at Middleton Place

The Spoleto Finale is one of the premiere nights in Charleston–the conclusion to a two-week festival celebrating emerging artists, musicians, and performers. The main event takes place at the picturesque Middleton Place and is capped off by a fireworks show. Families, friends, and people of all ages drag their beach chairs, picnic baskets, and blankets through the muddy parking lots and park themselves on Middleton’s sprawling lawn from afternoon to night.

This year, Charleston-born Shovels & Rope performed. I am still familiarizing myself with the folk-inspired local musicians down here and had never heard much about them, but their performance was super entertaining and I even recognized a few songs!
