Music To Your Mouth in Palmetto Bluff Is Coming Back November 15 – 18

Music to Your Mouth
Rodney Scott Rock the Dock Music To Your Mouth?Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina (November 18, 2017)

This fall, Palmetto Bluff is bringing together the twelth annual Music to Your Mouth on November 15-18.

This go around, Palmetto Bluff has corralled the best and the brightest of the South’s culinarians, a creatively colorful mix of vintners, brewers, distillers and mixologists and an all-star line-up of musicians.

This lowcountry event is a curated series of epicurean events and engaging experiences with celebrated chefs and winemakers. From the Southern speakeasy and a bacon and bourbon cruise to a traditional oyster roast and the “pig event,” this is one of the very best weekends to experience the beauty and relaxed pace of Palmetto Bluff. Five percent of all ticket sales will benefit Second Helpings, a Bluffton charity that collects perishable goods from local food providers and distributes the food to non-profit agencies to help feed those in need in our area.

“We started the event in an attempt to create a tradition at Palmetto Bluff,” event creator Courtney Hampson says. “The food traditions and history at Palmetto Bluff run deep, so we felt like food would be a great connector to get people to gather.”

See below for the 2018 schedule of events:

Big Carol’s Big Dinner
7 – 10 p.m. | Treehouse Park | $225
When you ask who the cook was at Palmetto Bluff during the Union Camp era, the answer comes quick, “Big Carol.” So, it was only appropriate that we name our food truck in honor of this legendary lady.

And oh, there will be dancing.
