NOW WITH 3 HOTEL CHOICES!
Welcome to our Spring feast, one that keeps us in the beautiful U. S of A, on the Atlantic coast. Have you met Charleston? Whether or not you have been here before, visit Charleston during a time of year that you will not want to miss. Hosted by several times James Beard Award Nominee Chef Kevin Fonzo, navigate the festival's events, hand-picked by Kevin.
The festival is a catalyst for connections that inspire curiosity through thoughtful storytelling and meaningful experiences with a "Sense of Place". Not, that's not our poetic side coming out, it is exactly how the festival describes itself. And it is right on point with what we know, and our personal experience. It also supports Charleston and the Lowcountry’s diverse culinary + hospitality community.
And it helps that it is hosted in one of the most beautiful historic parts of the city. So, join Kevin and Art In Voyage for a true feast of the senses.
