Outdoor Market returns to Coligny

Around Town


March Outdoor Market brings open-air fun and excitement to Coligny.

On Hilton Head Island, the month of March begs to be spent outdoors. Winter weather is receding, ushering in that sweet spot of warm weather before summer brings the hectic pace of tourist season. If you’re looking to get a little al fresco in your life, Coligny has just what you’re looking for.

For its upcoming Outdoor Market, to be held from 2 to 7 p.m. March 25, Coligny Plaza is taking all of the fun and excitement it’s known for and giving it a dose of sunshine in an outdoor festival for the whole family.

There will be bounce houses and arts and crafts for the kids, and even the dining options will be served up al fresco thanks to a fleet of mouth-watering food trucks. As the sun goes down, Souls Harbor will heat up the festivities with their signature rock sound.

“We’ve always said that Coligny is Hilton Head’s downtown, but that’s not just a slogan for us,” said Coligny owner JR Richardson. “Events like this really let us bring the community together. They really let us own that role as Hilton Head’s downtown.”

The event is the latest in a string of successful outdoor festivals offered up by Coligny, which include a Bluffton-themed Outdoor Market in February and the arrival of Santa Claus via helicopter this past December. 

Downtown Curbside Kitchen, the mobile version of Bluffton’s Downtown Deli, has been a mainstay at these festivals, and co-owner Leah McCarthy says she has seen how much fun these Outdoor Market events are.

“We love the energy at Coligny Plaza events,” McCarthy said. “It gives us a chance to interact and showcase our food truck with the locals. The music is great, and there is going to be something to do for the whole family.”

There’s no better way to celebrate the return of warm weather than by getting out there and taking in some great food, live music and family fun. And there’s no better place to do it than Coligny. Visit www.facebook.com/colignyplaza for details.
