The festival is one of the nation’s premier outdoor festivals attracting approximately 250,000 people each year, featuring over 300 vendors that offer fine art, arts & crafts, a retail marketplace, outdoor village, and of course, SHRIMP!! Two stages offer continuous musical entertainment while the little one’s attention is captured in the Children’s Activity Village where they create their own “art” and participate in other fun-filled activities.
This year there will continue a relatively new tradition with the 4th Annual Shrimp Festival Singing for Scholarships which will take place Saturday on the west stage. This contest features the best of the best youth talent from Baldwin County, AL.
Another Perk: Which local restaurant has the best Shrimp Dish? You’ll find out at the 9th Annual Restaurant Challenge.
Saturday is Sand Sculpture Day where you can meet up with your crew on Saturday Morning for the family friendly sand sculpture contest. Prizes included cash and trophies!
There is something for everyone at the festival. Go ahead and book your stay today! See you in October!
