The beauty and Gullah history of the Island has inspired a vibrant arts and cultural scene, filled with art galleries, museums, and theatrical and musical entertainment from traditional to contemporary, while painters, authors, sculptors, actors, dancers, and musicians from Hilton Head and Bluffton regularly receive regional and national acclaim for their work. Join in our Lowcountry traditions and celebrations—and create a few of your own—as you discover arts and culture on Hilton Head.
