Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival

On September 24 – 26th, the 35th Annual Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival is being held at the Huntington Beach State Park near Murrells Inlet.

Besides its setting, the festival offers a large variety of arts and crafts, including woodworking, paintings, needlework, jewelry and much more. There are always a number of activities for the children as well as various food stalls to quell any hunger pangs.

In honor of her contributions to the art world, this festival welcomes in over one hundred local and national artisans to show their wares. Over 10,000 people browse the eclectic displays of hand blown glass, baskets, and other artifacts. In addition, no walk through a castle would be complete without live entertainment around every corner, and some great food to enjoy. Atalaya (a Spanish word for “watchtower” and pronounced at-a-LIE-ya) is a low-slung Moorish-style coastal fortress and offers a most unique setting for an art festival.
