The Mauldin Cultural Center is kicking off its summer season! The Beachin’ Fridays summer music series begins on May 28th and lasts through July 30th, bringing bigger and better things than ever before. Concerts are held every Friday at 7PM, rain or shine, at the Mauldin Cultural Center’s Outdoor Amphitheater.
This year’s bands are sponsored by Duke Energy. In order of appearance by week, the bands are: The Holiday Band; The Shag Doctorz; The Tams; Carolina Coast Band; Rhythm City Band; Larry McNair & Friends; The Catalinas; Jump Street; Dana Jones & the Bruce Caldwell Project; and Band of Oz on the finale night followed by a fireworks show sponsored by United Community Bank.
Beachin’ Fridays started in 2015, bringing the beach music scene to Mauldin. People from all over the Upstate converge on the Mauldin Outdoor Amphitheater for evenings of shag dancing, beer and wine by Growler Haus, and food trucks. Food trucks for this year’s concerts include Bosco’s Baby’s, Seoul Republic, Mac Attack, Jo the Noodle Lady, and more. This year’s event is also sponsored by Cristina Ortiz of State Farm. A complete schedule for food trucks can be found at mauldinculturalcenter.org/beachin-fridays.
Also returning for another summer is the Mauldin Farmer’s Market, sponsored by Ryan Homes. The Market will run every Tuesday, 5 – 8PM, from June 1 to July 27 at the Mauldin Outdoor Amphitheater.
The Mauldin Farmers Market features a variety of vendors from around the Upstate selling locally sourced and produced items and handmade goods! Most vendors accept cash and/or credit cards.
The Mauldin Farmers Market, also sponsored by First Step Realty, will feature food trucks, beer and wine from Growler Haus, and weekly family activities such as live music, cooking demonstrations, a petting zoo, and more. A full list of vendors, activities, and food trucks can be found at mauldinmarket.com.
Additionally, the Rotary Club of Mauldin invites you to help out those in need by contributing non-perishable food items, paper products, cleaning products, and/or toiletries. Please bring a donation for the Center for Community Services Food Bank when you come to the Mauldin Farmers Market or Beachin’ Fridays.
Both Beachin’ Fridays and the Mauldin Farmers Market are free to attend, and guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the outdoor performances. Leashed dogs are also allowed. Food and beverages are available from on-site vendors; outside food and beverages are prohibited.
