Attend the Revamped Spoleto Finale

What has long been the most wonderful outdoor event of the year has a surprising change of venue in 2018. Mark June 10 on your calendar for the finale’s debut at Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park. We’re bummed to lose the Middleton Place tradition of bringing comfy chairs, blankets, and coolers packed with bubbly, fine cheeses, and finger sandwiches, but we’re willing to check out The Joe and its promise of “fabulously indulgent concessions.” After all, the commute will be much easier, The Lone Bellow is headlining, and fireworks will still cap off the evening. Let’s hope they continue to synch up the light show with a carefully chosen song (last year’s David Bowie track left many in awe-invoked tears).
