The Exchange Club of Charleston and Coastal Carolina Fair need your help!
The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) is moving forward with a plan to take control of portions of the Coastal Carolina Fair property to use as a Park and Ride bus stop!
Please help us save the Coastal Carolina Fair by clicking the link below and sending your representatives the message at the bottom of the homepage.


This proposed government land grab by CARTA will hurt the Fair. It could result in the loss of a huge portion of Fair property and cause irreparable harm to the future success of the Fair and its ability to raise the revenue that is used to support local charities, first responders, military, and student scholarships.

The Fair and its partners support thousands of people in need and work to provide everyday necessities year round.The Fair also provides an opportunity for hundreds of small businesses and vendors to sell their goods and services, supporting the local economy and each vendor's individual livelihood.

If the Coastal Carolina Fair lost any of its property it would negatively impact attendance and our ability to raise needed revenue for our Lowcountry charitable partners. 

The Coastal Carolina Fair’s Positive Impact Here In The Lowcountry:

  • Provided 2,000 Grants to Non-profits Since 2003

  • Provides Scholarships to Students Each Year

  • Donated Over $11 Million Back to the Community
