Pedal Hilton Head Island is more than just a series of fantastic cycling events; it’s a celebration of the island’s music, culture and two-wheeled lifestyle. Along with the main events, there will be an entire weekend of opportunities, Nov. 16-18, to enjoy the best that Hilton Head Island has to offer, while still supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island.
Friday & Saturday Evening Concert: The Music of the Grateful Dead
Hilton Head Island’s local music label Swampfire Records is producing a special event at Coligny Theatre spotlighting the timeless tunes of The Grateful Dead. Lending their musical talents to the evening’s festivities will be local artists Jevon Daly, NATIVE, Cranford Hollow and many more, all to benefit the Boys & Girls Club. Shows begin at 8 p.m. Nov. 16 and 6 p.m. Nov. 17.
For an hour before each concert, volunteers will be on hand to give you everything you need for the cycling events: packets, shirts and a swag bag bursting with goodies.
