Myrtle Beach's May Festival Lineup Announced

The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, along with city leaders, began announcing plans over the past week for several weekend festivals aimed at boosting travel to the area during the month of May. The festivals, all of which target different genres of music, will feature concerts from nationally-known acts as well as other related activities including fireworks shows.

Festivities will kick off downtown on Saturday, May 15 with several big events: the city's new Beach Music Festival will coincide with the ribbon cutting for the new oceanfront Boardwalk. The festival will run all day, from 10 AM 'til 10 PM, and the lineup of performers is a veritable Who's Who of beach music: Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs, The Coasters, The Embers, Jim Quick & Coastline, Mark Roberts & Breeze and Billy Scott & the Party Prophets will all lead up to headliner Ben E. King. In addition, Buddy Valastro, TLC's "Cake Boss," will attempt to bake the world's largest flip-flop cake. Put 'em all together, and you've got the perfect recipe for a great weekend.

The fun continues on May 22 with the Beach Blast! contemporary Christian music festival. The festival will feature a number of the most popular contemporary Christian artists, including headliner TobyMac, and will take place at the former site of Myrtle Square Mall in the heart of Myrtle Beach.



Finally, plans for a reinvigorated Memorial Day weekend were announced this morning, and the lineup is truly impressive. In addition to the already-scheduled Military Appreciation Days events held in and around Market Common, the downtown area will host a full slate of events. The first Memorial Day parade in recent memory will wind its way down Ocean Boulevard past arts and crafts vendors on May 29, and a world-class fireworks show will end the evening with a bang.

In between, visitors will be treated to meet-and-greets with a host of Disney celebrities, including Nathan Kress of iCarly, Savannah Outen of Hannah Montana, Jasmine Richards of Camp Rock, Drake Bell of Drake and Josh, Tiffany Thornton of Sonny with a Chance and Debby Ryan of Suite Life on Deck. The weekend's highlight, however, will be a concert at the former Myrtle Square Mall site featuring not only Outen, Bell and Richards, but Hannah Montana's Mitchell Musso and American Idol Season 6 winner Jordin Sparks!

Memorial Day is definitely back in the Myrtle Beach area, and we hope you'll have the chance to experience it with us!
