Spoleto Festival

Welcome to the Charleston Grit family, Marcus. We're happy to have you.

On November 3rd, 2015, the people of Charleston will do something that has not been done since 1975: go vote in a mayoral race that won’t have Joseph P. Riley, Jr. on the ballot.

How, in a city that is heavily stratified by race, income, and history, can one man remain in power so long and remain so beloved? We say thank you to Mayor Joe Riley for forty years of service.

Spoleto ended last night with a bang heard clear across the Lowcountry as Shovels and Rope, and an amazing fireworks show capped off Charleston's biggest festival.
