SOS Fall Migration 2022

If you have been to Main Street in North Myrtle Beach.. you know they love Carolina Beach Music and a dance they call the Shag. If you want to experience the ultimate adult fall vacation break, then you need to check out SOS. It stands for Society of Stranders and its a big membership group that has 3 major events each year. One membership card gets you in all clubs for all 3 major events (day and night). Membership is about $35/year, You can sign up with your local ACSC Member Shag Club or in numerous places down at Ocean Drive at NMB! Look for the tents and the store during any of the events for cards, merchandise and schedule information.

In the Fall – they call it Fall Migration.

Schedules are subject to change without notice. Some of the DJs have changed their plans. Some have announced, some have not.  I will do my best to edit this page when I have a chance. Thanks for the understanding and please be patient with the staff at these venues. It has been a rough year to find people that want to work.

    • It would be a question to each of the participating clubs that are involved with SOS. For years, there were no bands at all during these events. Each club makes a decision who to book based on price and who will draw. I can’t speak for the clubs. My guess would be costs is the major factor. I have no idea what the Medallions charge.

  1. How about parking? There appears to be no place for outside free parking. The vacant lot behind Fat Harolds is all fenced in. One would think that OD and NMB are against the SOS events. They should provide some parking for people wanting to see the different bands without having to pay.

    • There will be shag workshops all week. The Fun Sunday and Fun Monday outdoor concerts were cancelled mainly due to the fact that they couldn’t afford the bands. In years past, they sold raffle tickets that helped pay for these big events. SOS Fall Migration is still on as of right now.

  2. My girlfriend and I are so interested in traveling to Myrtle Beach sometime in September, (2021) and we would love to experience Shaggin’. What would you suggest for lodging and when would be a good time to come. I live in Wisconsin, and she lives in Minnesota. , and discussing this trip has really kept us sane during the pandemic, but we are clueless on how to make the plans. Can you help????

    • First of all.. You want to stay in North Myrtle Beach and not Myrtle Beach. SOS Fall Migration is September 16-25 so you want to come down during that time to get the best experience. If you want to be able to walk to all the events, the OD Resort is one of the top choices. Call asap, the hotel books up during SOS Events. There are some condos in the area and houses for rent. For 2 people, I would receommend the hotel.
