Edisto Kicks Off Spring: Road Race, Edisto Eats Food Festival

It’s almost time for the unofficial kick off to the spring season on Edisto Beach.

March 15 marks the third annual Edisto Road Race and fourth annual Edisto Eats Food Festival, both of which have become extremely popular among visitors and locals alike.

The road race begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Wyndham Ocean Ridge Resort. There will be a one-mile run/walk and a 5k run/walk, so that participants of all athletic abilities are able to have fun and hit the pavement of the town’s side streets.

Registration is $20. Call the Edisto Chamber of Commerce at 843-869-3867 for more information or to register.

The Edisto Eats Festival and Ultimate Chef Competition begins around 11 a.m. March 15 in the parking lot behind McConkey’s Jungle Shack on Jungle Road.

This event will feature all sorts of vendors selling everything from beer, wine and food, to arts and crafts. Some of Edisto’s other nonprofit organizations will also be in attendance, so be sure to check them out if you’re in the area.

Children are welcome at the festival and can take part in games along with arts and crafts.

The Ultimate Chef portion of the competition will pit the best chefs in the area against one another to see who can win the Ultimate Chef title. Those in attendance at the festival will get to watch the chefs battle one another’s culinary skills.

Live music will be playing throughout the day thanks to DJ Chip Brown. Local talent in attendance has yet to be determined.

For more information about the food festival, contact edistoeatsfoodfestival@gmail.com.

Remember the proceeds from the Edisto Eats Festival and Ultimate Chef Competition benefit the nonprofit group Edisto United. This group is comprised of Learning through Loggerheads, Edisto Eats, and Edisto Elves. These organizations are all dedicated toward helping the youth of the island so that they may realize their full potential.
