Are you looking for a place to enjoy the sights and sounds of spring in Charleston? From concerts to an Easter Festival, Freshfields Village has you and your family covered—for free!

Experience spring in full bloom during The Spring Concert Series at the Village Green. This free series is sure to entertain with bands performing beach music, oldies, blues and rock from 6 until 9 p.m. the last three Fridays of April.

April 15: The Coppertones- One of the premier party bands in the area who will be sure to keep you on your feet all evening!  Their extensive song list features beach music, oldies, and R&B. 

April 22: The Rum Punch Bandits- Originally a Jimmy Buffett tribute band, The Rum Punch Bandits now perform several genres, like beach, classic rock, Tex-rock, gulf-n-western, trop-rock and jam-rock. This seven piece party band includes two electric guitars, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, keyboards/pedal steel, congas/bongos, and drums.

April 29: Shrimp City Slim- Local favorite, Shrimp City Slim, is back again this season!  Creator of Lowcountry Blues, a combination of post-modern blues and various musical flavors heard on the Carolina coast, songwriter and musician Gary Erwin and his band are creating original music that is earning them a reputation worldwide. 

On Easter (April 24), Cavalry of the Sea Islands Church will hold an Easter Service on the Village Green at 9:30 am. The service is casual and open to anyone.  We recommend guests bring a chair or blanket.
