ROVE is always looking for new venues! 


  • ROVE is a one night event in Mount Pleasant that happens twice a year in September and May. 
  • ROVE is a fun art walk with a handful of venues. We want rovers to be able to visit all the locations with time for food and beverage stops! 
  • ROVE is meant to be very walkable and typical parameters are along Main Street from 2nd to Broadway. 
  • ROVE focuses on art spaces that work with a curator to create engaging art experiences and feature local artists. 
  • We believe art and artists are fun and it should not be intimidating to meet local creatives. 
  • We party together after! (After party at the Projection Room starting at 10pm)
