Total Eclipse of the Creek

Once upon a time there was light in our lives, but now there's only love in the dark. There's nothing we can say, it's a Total Eclipse of the Creek. 

Tavern is partnering up with Red's Ice House to celebrate the first Total Eclipse of the Sun visible in the United States since 1979 with a big viewing party on the dock of one of the most beautiful locations in Charleston, Shem Creek. 

Forever's gonna start tonight at Tavern at 1:30pm where you will be provided with a free pair of solar eclipse viewing glasses to watch it all go down while enjoying beats by The Good Times Duo (feat. Jayson Sabo & Mike Reid) and sip on Tavern's specialty cocktail, Total Eclipse of the Heart. 

The after party will take place at Red's Ice House where guests can keep the party going on the dock with live music from Taco Donkey. 

Once upon a time there was light in our lives, but for two minutes there will be love in the dark. It's a Total Eclipse of the Creek.

More about Riverfront Park and the festival

The City of North Charleston's 4th of July Festival is our largest sponsored event.  Annually held at Riverfront Park, the Festival features nationally renowned performers, such as Mary Wilson of the Supremes, Marshall Tucker Band, Lee Greenwood, and the Blue Dogs.

Riverfront Park is open to the public year-round and has become a favorite destination for residents and visitors. Set on the banks of the beautiful Cooper River, the park is adjacent to the historic homes once occupied by the Charleston Naval Base officers, surrounded by graceful grand oak trees and peaceful river vistas. Bordered by Noisette Creek, the park boasts a magnificent contemporary Performance Pavilion and meadow.

Riverfront Park is home to the Greater Charleston Naval Base Memorial, erected in honor of the countless military personnel and civilians that served the United States and the Greater Charleston region while the Charleston Navy Base was operational. The Memorial is the only location in the United States that displays both the Lone Sailor and the Homecoming statues. Riverfront Park is also the location of North Charleston’s Annual National Outdoor Sculpture Competition and Exhibition.  A component of the North Charleston Arts Festival, the Competition and Exhibition features large-scale contemporary sculptures on display throughout the year.
