A selection of recent 2022 and 2023 covers from the City Paper.

Wondering where your City Paper is this week?

Starting Friday, you can pick up the new weekly print issue of the Charleston City Paper at 800 locations around the area. The change from the traditional publication date of Wednesday to Friday offers two big benefits:

  • More fun. Advertisers are now able to provide the most up-to-date information to readers about weekend parties, festivals, music shows, specials and other events. Bottom line: You’ll be able to better plan your fun.
  • More news. New deadlines mean we’ll cover more timely and developing news from earlier in the week. That means you’ll be better informed about the Lowcountry.

“We know you might feel a little lost on Wednesdays not being able to find our latest news or the crossword puzzle or the craziness identified by our cartoonists,” editor and publisher Andy Brack said. “We find it a little disorienting too — not having weekend and early week deadlines.  

“But this new change is going to be great for everyone — you’ll learn more about what happens on weekends on Fridays, and we’ll get our weekends back for the first time in years!”

While our print publication date may be changing, we continue to deliver daily new stories to our online readers. Stay up-to-date on the latest news, events, food, arts and music coverage at CharlestonCityPaper.com. And, follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.
