The Southeast Tourism Society (STS) has named the Lowcountry Oyster Festival (January 27th, 2019) one of the STS Top 20 Events in the Southeast for January 2019. The STS Top 20 Festival and Event Awards have highlighted programs around the Southeast since 1985.
Travel industry experts select 20 events per month, and STS publicizes them throughout the United States. The complete list is published on two websites: Southeast Tourism Society and Travel Media Press Room.
“The Top 20 Festival and Event Program is celebrating 34 years of spotlighting the best festivals and events in the Southeast," Monica Smith, president and CEO of the Southeast Tourism Society said. "Our goal is to provide well-deserved accolades for the dedicated event organizers and additional media exposure for their events. The Southeast offers so many unique, year-round, opportunities for attendees to create memories and support an industry that is an economic generator for its community.”
Events considered for the STS Top 20 recognition must be at least three years old and have attendance of at least 1,000. The online nomination link and submission deadlines are available at SoutheastTourism.org or by calling 770-542-1523.
