SOS Festivals - Shaggin' at the Beach

Shagging in North Myrtle Beach

SOS, the Society of Stranders, meets three times each year in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The January Mid-Winter Celebration is four days long while the Spring Safari and Fall Migration are each ten day events. One admission card is purchased for ALL events in a calendar year for the bargain price of only $35. This provides you access to the six major shag clubs – all within walking distance of each other. The participating clubs are Fat Harold’s, Ducks/Duck’s Too, the OD Arcade & Lounge, the Pirate’s Cove Lounge, and the OD Beach & Golf Resort Club. All have excellent dance floors where you can shag the days and nights away.

Shag dancing is a unique 1950s-era classic that was born on the Carolina coast. This ever popular dance is enjoyed by many as enthusiasts from all over celebrate its rich history at these fun events.

The Spring Migration is scheduled for April 17th through the 26th this year with the highlight of the event being the annual parade on Saturday, April 25th. The parade consists of floats, walkers, golf carts, and more – each festively decorated by shag clubs throughout the country.
The Fall Migration is scheduled for September 11th through the 20th with the highlight events being “Fun Sunday” and “Fun Monday”, the 13th and 14th. The “fun” days consist of street parties with popular entertainers and beach music bands.


Throughout all SOS events you will find various bands playing in the clubs, lots of great DJs and, of course, free food and cold adult beverages. It’s like a Spring Break for those of us who have never truly grown up. Come join the fun! You won’t be disappointed.
