This spring, Old Towne Creek County Park is set to be the perfect after-work spot for socializing! The popular Wine Down Wednesday series returns for the first event of 2015 on Wednesday, April 1, and the Brewsday series kicks off Tuesday, April 7. Old Towne Creek County Park is not yet regularly open to the public, but on these select dates, Lowcountry residents are invited to experience the beauty of this park property.

 

Wine Down Wednesday will be held on select Wednesdays in April at Old Towne Creek County Park fom 5 – 7 p.m. Guests will enjoy wine, hors d’oeuvres and live music (see schedule below) while exploring the park located in West Ashley.

Returning for its second year, the Brewsday series will be held on select Tuesdays in April and May from 5 – 7 p.m. at Old Towne Creek County Park. Brewsday will be another great chance to get a sneak peek of this future park, while enjoying some after work social time. The event will feature live music, tasty eats from a local food truck on site, and craft beer (see schedule below). Admission to Brewsday is $6 per person. Charleston County residents can purchase discount tickets in advance. Food and beverages are an additional fee.

Both the Brewsday and Wine Down Wednesday series will return in fall 2015.

 

Old Towne Creek County Park is a beautiful property in West Ashley that is not yet open to the public on a regular basis. Formerly Ashem Farm, the site was once home to Charleston preservationist Emily Ravenel Farrrow and her St. Andrews Riding Academy.

The 67-acre estate is dotted with open fields mixed among groves of Live Oaks. The public is invited to come be inspired by the legacy of the Lowcountry’s nature and history with views from the park of South Carolina’s first English settlement at Charles Towne Landing, and the winding of Old Towne Creek through the salt marsh. Currently, Old Towne Creek County Park is only open for special event purposes and private rentals, but along with several other property holdings throughout the Lowcountry, it will one day become a county park available for regular use. Events like Wine Down Wednesday and Brewsday offer great opportunities for the general public to get a sneak peek.

 

Wine Down Wednesday and Brewsday are brought to you by Southern Eagle Distributing and your Charleston County Parks. For more information, visit www.charlestoncountyparks.com or call 843-795-4386.
