The Bluffton Sunset Party Series returns April 23 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., with the 2021 Summer Kick Off Party at Oyster Factory Park on the May River.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Acoustic Mayhem and CornBreD.

The series is celebrating its ninth summer. These riverfront events find the Bluffton community coming together to celebrate local foods, vendors, craft beers, live music and other fun activities for people of all ages. 

Bluffton Sunset Parties are held once a month during the summer, with each one featuring a different theme.

Event organizer Mark Weisner said, “Bluffton Sunset Parties are all about the locals. We try and create a fun, friendly, safe and festive environment where our entire community can get together to enjoy great live music, fantastic food and ice cold drinks, all with a breathtaking view of the May River.”

Guests can party with their pooch at the pet- and kid-friendly Sunset Parties, which benefit several local charities including Coastal Conservation Association, Bluffton Paddle Club and others.

April 23 – 2021 Kick Off Event
