Zero George Street Rates & Reservations


The  Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) is one of the most anticipated annual Lowcountry events spreading its wings across the entire downtown Charleston Peninsula – all within walking distance of Zero George Street Hotel.

SEWE began in 1983 with the mission to contribute to the local economy while promoting wildlife and nature conservation and preservation. Today, SEWE stays true to this original goal, hosting a 3-day celebration of wildlife and nature “through fine art, conservation education, sporting demonstrations, food, drink and the people who honor them all.” As the largest exposition of its kind, SEWE finds its home in Charleston, SC where it generates an estimated $50 million a year while increasing awareness for wildlife preservation efforts and celebrating the great things that nature has to offer.

This years exposition takes place on the weekend of February 13-15, although those interested in starting the celebration early can purchase VIP tickets to Tuesday and Wednesday events before the exposition opens to all. Starting at 9am on Friday, guests can register their dogs in the only two tank DockDogs event east of the Mississippi. Dockdogs is the world’s Premiere Canine Compeition, in which water-loving dogs can compete in several categories to prove their retriving finesse: Big Air, Speed Retrieve, Extreme Vertical, and Iron Dog. The DockDogs competition spans the full three-days with the finals taking place Sunday afternoon.

In addition to the canine competition, art exhibitions open at 10 am on Friday and demos and educational sessions begin that afternoon – ranging from cooking classes to net and birds of prey flight demos. With an full three-day schedule of activities, we’ve curated some weekend highlights that cannot be missed.

Dance & Dine

With a focus on wildlife gaming, SEWE host several dinner events throughout the weekend sure to satisfy a wide range of culinary interests while remaining true to its southern roots.


At 6pm the Ducks Unlimited Oyster Roast takes place at the Charleston Visitors Center. This lowcountry cookout will feature live music, live and silent auctions, an open bar and tons of delectable oysters. Tickets are $70 in advance and include a membership with Ducks Unlimited.

If you’re looking for a black-tie affair, then the South Carolina Waterfowl Association Sportsman’s Ball is the Friday night activity de jour. Taking place at 6 pm at the Omar Shrine Temple, this seated dinner and drinks event also hosts a silent and live auction. Looking to spend time with friends? Reserve a 10-person table for your group!


Starting at 7pm at the Charleston Visitor’s Center, Saturday’s SEWE Soiree is not to be missed. 21 and over guests can purchase tickets to this open-air affair where dancing boots and jeans are the dress code. This dinner extravaganza celebrates SEWE with local oysters, sumptuous Southern Barbecue, wild game, live music, and an open bar.
