Whether you're leaving your house this weekend (be sure to social distance!) or chillin' at home, here are our recommendations for what to stream, see and do.
Call and Response: A Concert for Equality
The Charleston Symphony Orchestra presents a special livestream program this Friday, Call and Response: A Concert for Equality, leveraging the power of music and the spoken word to promote unity and understanding. The evening features music of African American and Afro-British composers as well as guest speakers including Charlton Singleton, Edward Hart and Darrin Goss, Sr. The program concludes with a performance from Charleston’s Ranky Tanky.
Summer Solstice Beach Bash
Celebrate the longest day of the year at Mex 1 Sullivan’s Island with music from Hans Wenzel and the Eighty Sixers. Enjoy drink specials from Patron Tequila.
Local artist Fletcher Williams III has opened a new exhibition, Promiseland, at the Aiken-Rhett House, on view through July 15. Promiseland features new and recent creations from Williams including large-scale works on paper, sculptures and installations. The exhibition continues to explore Williams’ ongoing interpretation and disfiguration of the white picket fence, an emblem he defines as imbued with aspiration, social mobility and the American dream.

Summer Solstice Party
Head to Palmetto Brewing Co. for a party that rocks all day long (it is the longest day of the year, after all). Enjoy food from That’s My Dawg Food Truck as well as promos and specials throughout the day. There will be live music from Jenna Feeney and as always, Blade and Bull Axe Throwing.
Summer Solstice Yoga

Juneteenth Ancestral Worship Ritual Ceremony
De Gullah Griot aka Giovanni Richardson hosts a Juneteenth ancestral worship ritual ceremony at McLeod Plantation this Sunday.
