Join us for a night complete with live music and one of our favorite Charleston traditions – a low country boil hosted by The Smoking Pot. Join us for food and libations followed by special performances from Americana legend Lucinda Williams, folk-rock troubadour Langhorne Slim, and South Carolina’s own Ranky Tanky celebrating the best of Southern roots music. Find out more here.

Join us in celebrating the best of Southern cuisine and culture with local chefs collaborating on their favorite dishes for a unique, family-style dining experience at High Water. At Pass the Peas, fans will enjoy locally crafted libations, artfully prepared and hand-selected food, as well as wines paired from around the world. This curated brunch series will have you breaking bread with Charleston’s finest in culinary arts. Find out more here.

Seaborn Oyster Co. is bringing High Water Festival attendees four exclusive oyster education classes, teaching you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Charleston’s favorite bivalve!

The one-hour class, each limited to 10 people, will introduce the basics of oysters and oyster-farming and will provide students with the skills and insight needed to shuck and enjoy oysters on their own. Each guest will shuck and taste a dozen oysters from Seaborn Oyster Co. No prior experience with or knowledge of oysters, oyster-tasting, or oyster-shucking is necessary. Beginners welcome! Find out more here!

Calling all fine wine connoisseurs! We’re thrilled to offer guided wine tastings with internationally renowned winemakers Ernst Loosen of Dr. Loosen and Pax Mahle of Wind Gap and Pax Wines throughout the High Water weekend. At Meet the Winemakers presented by Stems & Skins, patrons will enjoy a tasting of world-class wines with the winemaker himself and a full pour of your favorite wine of choice from the event, in addition to a GoVino wine glass to commemorate the experience. Find out more here.
