On Sat. May 2, Spoleto Festival USA hosts its annual savings day for locals. It’s a one-day-only opportunity for Charlestonians to save on a range of the world-class performances offered by the festival. Spoleto Saturday (formerly known as Taste of Spoleto) gives local patrons a chance to beat the crowds and save 20 percent on selected performances. Spoleto staff will be on hand to provide information about the 2009 programs. Get there early, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., to receive special offers. Spoleto Saturday will be held at the Gaillard Auditorium at 77 Calhoun St., from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more info, check out spoletousa.org or call (843) 579-3100. —Candice Summers
