In partnership with Visit Myrtle Beach, next year’s competition will again take place at the Oceanfront at Burroughs & Chapin Pavilion Place, following a four-day schedule that includes two days of qualifiers and a two-day final.
The 2024 event will offer reserved general admission seating to enhance the fan experience and a consolidated center stage for the four-day competition. The fan festival area will remain free to the public and include food trucks, giveaways and a viewing area for fans.
“We’re excited to welcome the World’s Strongest Man competition back to Myrtle Beach and the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place for a second consecutive year,” said Karen Riordan, president and chief executive officer of Visit Myrtle Beach. “The crowd at the 2023 event exceeded our expectations, as we saw fans from around the U.S. and the world cheer on the competitors over the four days of the event. We can’t wait to welcome the strongmen and their fans back to The Beach and hope they enjoy all our destination has to offer.”
