Charleston Gaillard Center

This year’s venue is in the heart of historic downtown Charleston, SC. 

The original Gaillard Municipal Auditorium and Exhibition Hall opened in July of 1968. For over 40 years, it served as a venue for thousands of memorable performances and civic events.
Construction of the new Charleston Gaillard Center started in August 2012 and finished in October 2015. It includes nine intimate lobby spaces and a uniquely styled 16,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom with stunning views of the terrace lawn and the Gaillard Center’s park and gardens.
