A Taste of Beaufort, an annual festival celebrating the intercoastal city of Beaufort, South Carolina, is hosted by Main Street Beaufort, and held near the waterfront with the support of a number of local sponsors.
For over ten years, the festival has been a draw for visitors to the city and natives who love to experience all the city has to offer in the space of a long weekend. Due to the generosity of the sponsors, the festival itself is free of charge and thousands of people attend each year. The three day festival includes live music, an arts and crafts market, a 5K race, a separate run/walk for younger children, activities and play areas for children and, most importantly, food to sample from local restaurants. Visitors to the festival purchase tickets for one dollar each, and then exchange their tickets with vendors for samples of the delicious food available. Most edibles cost between two and seven tickets.
In addition to local food, the festival serves beer, wine and soft drinks. Attendees can enjoy their Taste of Beaufort listening to live music and eating fresh food made locally.
