Charleston Music Festival Brings In Big Names for Brunch

Chefs from Renzo to Short Grain

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

Sure, the bands and singers are the big pull at music festival High Water, the pre-show brunch event Pass the Peas brings in some culinary heavy hitters. On Saturday, April 13, and Sunday, April 14, the festival will host a brunch at 11:30 a.m. on the lawn of Quarters H at Riverfront Park in North Charleston, SC.

Saturday’s chef lineup includes Jacques Larson of Obstinate Daughter and Wild Olive, and Shuai Wang of Short Grain. Sunday features Jill Mathias of Chez Nous and Evan Gaudreau of Renzo.

Larson says,

I am so very excited for Pass the Peas this year. I believe that this year’s lineup is going to perfectly capture what we have set out to do with these brunches from the beginning — to give our guests a true cross-section of our community as it pertains to the cuisine and hospitality of our city. The lineup once again features chefs that have not only embraced the principles of supporting local, but who have taken these ingredients and have blended it with Charleston’s rich culinary history to forge unique styles of their own. It is always so rewarding to collaborate with people that you admire and these three are putting out some kick ass food in our city right now.

Each ticket is $150 and includes a multi-course family meal and alcohol — a portion of the proceeds benefits The Green Heart Project — available at
