A Taste of the Lowcountry is an annual back to school fundraiser for students and families that is hosted by the Queen City Lowcountry Group. It is a family reunion type of event with a live DJ, and a low country buffet with fried fish, crabs, rice, gumbo, several vegetables, chicken, hot dogs, etc. Students, up to 12th grade, attend our event free with a paying adult. Students who attend will also receive back to school supplies (while they last). Our guests spend the day relaxing at the park laughing, dancing, enjoying the food and reuniting with friends or meeting new ones. The students are entertained in their area with a variety of games, contests and treats.
The Queen City Lowcountry Group is a non-prof...it organization. Most members are from the low country area of South Carolina — Charleston, Georgetown, and surrounding areas.
