Illumination Charleston will feature:

  • Guided tours of historic homes decorated for the holidays

  • Presentations and cooking demonstrations with chefs such as Kardea Brown, Rodney Scott, and Ivy Odom

  • “Design in Mind Talks” with notable design and architecture experts such as Alessandra Branca, India Hicks and Ashley Whittaker

With prices starting at $75, tickets are for sale a la carte for individual events as well as through a variety of ticket packages that include access to several events. The full schedule of events and tickets are available now at IlluminationCharleston.com.

“Illumination Charleston will be a special gathering of some of the most inspiring tastemakers, designers, and chefs in the South (and beyond!).” said Sid Evans, Editor in Chief of Southern Living. “We’re excited to create a new experience that celebrates the joys of the season in a city that pulls out all the stops for the holidays.”

Set in the newly renovated Charleston Visitors Center, the Southern Living Tastemakers Holiday Market will provide a special, one-time-only shopping experience, showcasing items curated and created by Southern Living Tastemakers. Products for sale will include womenswear, original artwork and prints, children’s clothing, artisanal home and garden goods, handbags, fine jewelry, and more. More than 30 trendsetting women from across the South who have been named Southern Living Tastemakers in the last three years will be on site for meet-and-greets throughout the weekend.

The Charleston Visitors Center, which is located at 375 Meeting Street, will be the central venue for the weekend. Events will also take place at Second Presbyterian and Aiken Rhett House, as well as in homes across the historic district.
