“We remember when we first started Party at the Point, and we can’t believe it’s been 14 years,” Ear for Music founder and booking agent Rob Lamble says. “This event has been a lot of fun and has grown over the last few years. The biggest growth for Party at the Point is it will now be a twice-a-year concert series: one in the summer and one in the fall.”

Free parking for the spring series is available on the street near the Charleston Harbor Resort or via valet parking for $5. Visit for more.
