Community Event Calendar

VISITOR CENTERS

  • Brochure & Business Card Racks: Gain valuable access to new customers by marketing your services through business card and brochure racks in our Oak Street and airport welcome centers. It's a free benefit of membership.

    Due to limited storage space and brochure rack size in the chamber's welcome centers, stakeholders are encouraged to submit brochures that are 4" in width and 9" in height. By displaying literature at this recommended size, your chamber will be able to distribute more stakeholder brochures and better meet our visitors' vacation planning needs.

    Questions? Please contact the Call Center at 843-626-7444.
     
  • Monthly Calendar of Events & Theater Schedule: A monthly calendar of events is available at the welcome centers. Events can be submitted online. During season, theater schedules are included on the calendar of events.
