During March, Myrtle Beach hosts Canadian-American Days, a festival offering a series of concerts, beach activities, sporting events, and other community-sponsored activities that provide an endless array of things to do. This lively festival, which began over 45 years ago as an event for Canadians visiting the Myrtle Beach area during their spring school break, has grown into a celebration not only for visiting Canadians, but for all guests and locals in the Myrtle Beach Area. The Canadian-America Days Festival has been selected one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast for the past 12 years by the Southeast Tourism Society.

Elliott Beach Rentals wants to welcome our Northern neighbors as the spring weather begins to show up. We offer special discounts on our beach homes and condos to stay in while you enjoy all of the fun CanAm activities the Myrtle Beach area provides. This time of year is also perfect to take advantage of our special golf packages!
Can Am Days in Myrtle Beach

Can Am Days Myrtle Beach

We love when all y’all come to visit, and this year is no different. Myrtle Beach area is rolling out the red carpet for its visitors to the North during the destination’s annual Canadian-American Days. This year, from March 8-16, the Myrtle Beach area will welcome Canadian and American visitors with a line-up of fun events, giveaways, discounts and concerts taking place throughout the Grand Strand.

Canadian-American Days draws as many as 100,000 Canadian visitors and snowbirds from northern states. The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce introduced Canada Days in 1961 to attract Canadian families during their spring school break. The name was changed in 1963 to Canadian-American Days. It is regarded as the first international festival organized in South Carolina.

“Can-Am Days celebrates our snowbird visitors, who escape the cold and snow for the beautiful climate and wealth of attractions of the Myrtle Beach area,” said Brad Dean, MBACC president and CEO. “Many of these visitors have been traveling to our destination for decades, and we strive to create new memories for each generation through our festivals.”

The 2014 Canadian-American Days offers a variety of events.

The 2014 Can-Am Days Festival is shaping up to be another fantastic event here in the Myrtle Beach area. Details about the activities are forthcoming, so please stay tuned!
