Mark your calendars—October is a fantastic time of the year to visit Myrtle Beach. The weather is great, the shows are still playing, the crowds have died down and the activities available to you will easily fill your calendar. For your convenience we have compiled some of the biggest events in October.
‘Tis the season for lederhosen and other Bavarian-inspired styles—that’s right, Oktoberfest is just around the corner and the Market Common is hosting an exciting celebration at Valor Park. That means live German music on Saturday and Sunday and, of course, lots of beer. The Market Common boasts one of the largest selections of Oktoberfest beer of the season. Enjoy German food throughout the festival. You can also bring your children since there are many fun activities for kids: pumpkin decorating, face painting, inflatables and more! In addition to Oktoberfest, here are some other events you may enjoy:
