Golden Fete was established in 2021 as an event consulting business to serve Surfside Beach and its surrounding areas. The owner, Amy Kowalski, wanted a unique name for her business thus coming up with Golden Fete. Fete is an older term from France and England meaning a “celebration” or “festival.” Golden comes from Goldie which was a nickname Amy’s grandfather used to call her. Golden Fete specializes in many events including fundraisers, galas, holiday parties, weddings, special occasion parties (Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, retirements, birthdays, etc.), meetings, conventions, and more. Golden Fete’s mission is to create a stress free event that encompasses the clients vision and budget.
