CHARLESTON, SC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/13 -- According to Sam Mustafa, founder of Charleston Hospitality Group, South Carolina -- and Charleston in particular -- is known for a lot of things including history, great food and leisurely coastal life. However, he notes that Charleston and the surrounding area also have a thriving art scene that both visitors and residents should prove more aware of. As such, he highlights the upcoming 31st annual North Charleston Arts Festival, a signature nine-day event scheduled to take place between May 3 and 11.

A recent article from The Digitel showcases the upcoming event and explains, "the nine day event has matured into one of the most comprehensive arts festival in the state, drawing thousands of residents and visitors to experience the talents of national, regional and local artists and performers in the areas of dance, music, theatre, visual arts, crafts, photography, media arts and literature. Nearly 100 festival offerings are scheduled to take place in a variety of venues throughout North Charleston and the surrounding area, including libraries, community centers, schools, civic auditoriums and parks."

Proud of the development of his local community and its continuous encouragement of the arts, Sam Mustafa comments, "The North Charleston Arts Festival is truly one of the most amazing arts events in the area that captures a slice of the community's creativity and diversity. No matter what one's background, there is sure to be something for every spectator at the event." The festival has not only become popular within the state, but has gained enough notoriety that it has been recognized as a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society.

Noting that the event takes place at multiple venues throughout the North Charleston area, Sam Mustafa explains that the Arts Festival offers a great chance for individuals to explore Charleston's neighboring community, which is in a process of great and expansive development. He adds, "What is great is that visitors can choose what events they want to go to; some are even free, so there is an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to the arts and enjoy the city at no price at all."

Sam Mustafa encourages all art lovers to consider attending the events featured at the North Charleston Arts Festival, noting that the May weather should offer a perfect atmosphere for exploring the city and the coastal area of Charleston.


Sam Mustafa founded Charleston Hospitality Group in 2008, a group known for providing food, nightlife, entertainment and transportation to residents and tourists. The group is now made up of businesses such as Toast!, Tabbuli, Market Street Saloon, Eli's Table, Whisk Bakery, Charleston Hospitality Catering, Charleston Downtown Limo and The Wreckfish.
