SC Commissioner Weathers: SEWE Starts this Friday in Charleston

The Southeastern Wildlife Expo is being held February 16-18 in Charleston. Let’s hear about it, Commissioner.   

  • The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) is an annual celebration of the great outdoors through fine art exhibits, live entertainment, and special events.
  • Broad audience of nature lovers, hunters, collectors, artists, and others.
  • The SEWE audience is a great place for us to push out our Certified SC message.
  • You can find the South Carolina Department of Agriculture in the Certified South Carolina corner of Marion Square. Look for the big red barn!
  • We have a whole tent full of Certified SC specialty product vendors – so bring your wallet.
  • Right next door is our Fresh on the Menu cooking stage, where some of South Carolina’s most talented chefs team up with their favorite farmers to host cooking demonstrations and tastings.
  • Curated by the Lee Bros, Matt and Ted.
  • I will be on the stage Friday along with Mrs. Blanche Weathers and Sherman Mack of Cherry Point Seafood.
  • The farmers appearing throughout the weekend include:
    • Harleston Towles of Rooting Down Farms
    • Rollen Chalmers of Rollen’s Raw Grains
    • Tyson and Julia Waddell of Blue Ridge Rabbit Meat Company – first time featuring rabbit at SEWE!
  • The chefs include Chef James London of Chubby Fish, Charleston Grille Chef Michelle Weaver, and our three Chef Ambassadors.
  • Other events throughout the weekend include birds of prey flight demonstrations, retriever demos, sheep and duck herding demos, live animal shows, and several fine art and decoy exhibits and auctions.
  • It is free to visit the tent in Marion Square.
