The Haunting of Palmetto Bluff | October 27 

Venture deep into the woods of the Bluff, where echoes of the past are lurking in the shadows. Embark on a spine-chilling journey to explore legends and step beyond the veil of the living and the dead. Will you leave with memories of those lost, or will you become a part of the story? 

In collaboration with SCADpro, the Palmetto Bluff Club is hosting a haunted hayride on Friday, October 27th, from 7-11pm at the Palmetto Bluff Shooting Club. Open to all for a spooktacular time, Palmetto Bluff Club members can make reservations through the member website; visitors of Palmetto Bluff can click here for reservations.

May River Classic Horse Show | November 11

Hosted at the Longfield Stables, the May River Classic Horse Show will feature riding competitions among multiple disciplines and feature a special ceremony to honor our veterans. These main events include a Hunter Derby, Mini Prix, and Leadline and Veterans Ceremony with the singing of the national anthem. Palmetto Bluff Club members can enjoy a VIP area offering tables of eight or individual tickets to include a glass of complimentary sparkling wine, a curated menu of breakfast and lunch offerings as well as tableside bar service during the show’s main events. 

Artist in Residence | November 15 – 18 & December 6 – 9

The husband and wife duo of Burls & Steel will be visiting Palmetto Bluff in mid November to forge handmade knives with Artist in Residence workshop participants. They love creating works that can be used on a daily basis, but that are also one-of-a-kind works of art.  From kitchen to outdoors knives, Burls & Steel have something for every aspiring home chef or hunter.

Coming in early December, Cacky Rivers was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina, and considers herself a true Lowcountry “salty” girl. Her father greatly impacted her love of wildlife, nature, and birds. Recently, Cacky took up wildlife photography and has yet to look back. Not only is this a true passion for her, but she also enjoys learning and sharing her knowledge of birds with others.

Conservancy Pop-Up Shops | November 17 & 20

For those interested in supporting the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy, visit the Conservancy Classroom in Moreland Village on Friday, November 17th, and Monday, November 20th, from 9am – 2pm for a Conservancy Pop-Up Shop.
