If you love azaleas, crafts, arts, live entertainment and local yummy food then add this festival to your calendar!  This festival has even been named one of the Top 20 events in the southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.  The variety of vendors each year really makes this event.  With more than 200 tents, you are sure to find something you love or a great gift.  In the past, I've left with Art, Earrings, t-shirts, and even some plants for my garden.   Can't go wrong with a huge glass of fresh lemonade as you sit and watch some entertainment or simply decide to people watch!   Take advantage of a trip into downtown Charleston and check out all it's history and beauty.   The Festival of Houses and Gardens is sure to interest those that love peeking at homes that are not usually on ...
