After an 18-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2nd Sunday on King Street will return to its every-month schedule beginning Sunday, September 12th.
“We’re very excited to re-start 2nd Sunday,” said Susan Lucas, President of the Charleston Peninsula Preservation Trust (CPPT), the non-profit that manages and produces the event. . “It’s been sorely missed by the downtown retail and dining establishments and the thousands of local and regional visitors who come to stroll, shop, dine and enjoy Charleston’s “Main Street” on a vehicle-free, pedestrian-only afternoon.”
2nd Sunday on King Street began in October 2010 and this fall will celebrate its 11th anniversary. Each event closes King Street from Calhoun to Queen Streets to all vehicular traffic from noon to 5 pm, so pedestrians can stroll down the road while enjoying a mix of vendors, restaurants, entertainment, and more.
“It’s the most popular and most regularly attended event on the peninsula,” said Karl Krull, Vice-President and Director of Operations for CPPT. “More than 1.5 million guests have patronized 2nd Sunday since its inception. We can’t wait to get it rolling again.”
