National Shrimp Festival
The Annual National Shrimp Festival is filled with four days of food, art, and music. Two music stages run non-stop on opposite sides of the grounds showcasing local and regional performing acts – some even roam throughout the grounds! Vendors fill the beachside with seafood dishes, paintings, photography, sculptures, homemade crafts, and unique gifts. Festival season also features 5K and 10K runs, a sandcastle contest, and the Miss Shrimp Festival festivities. The best part? Admission into the Shrimp Fest is free.
A tradition in Coastal Alabama since 1971, the Annual National Shrimp Festival prides itself on being entirely organized and run by a volunteer committee of community leaders, workers, and liaisons.
