Southeastern Wildlife Exposition: The Perfect Reason to Visit Charleston

Charleston Southeastern Wildlife Expo Feb 13-17 2019

This year, Valentine’s Day happens to fall the Thursday before President’s Day weekend. While Charleston is certainly known for its romance, President’s Weekend is one of Charleston’s most famous weekends because it’s time for the annual Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE). This is your perfect opportunity to make that long weekend a little longer and enjoy some much-deserved time off.

SEWE is a must-do in Charleston, and an event locals and visitors alike wait all year to experience. Starting on Wednesday, February 13 with its opening night reception, and running through the evening of Sunday the 17th, you are invited to join more than 40,000 other attendees for this “celebration of wildlife and nature through fine art, conservation education, sporting demonstrations, food, drink, and the people who honor them all.”

All day and night there are events ranging from family-friendly activities like dog jumping competitions and fishing demonstrations to fun-for-the-grownups evening socials, black-tie gala and ladies’ brunch, making this the perfect weekend to grab your family or a group of friends and make your way to Charleston.

Tickets are still available but going fast, and most activities are within walking distance to The Charleston Chestnut Mansion. To see the full schedule and purchase tickets, click here.
