The Annual National Shrimp Festival is held each year during the second full weekend in October on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama. The Festival is one of the nation’s premier outdoor festivals featuring over 300 vendors that offer fine art, arts and crafts, a retail marketplace and of course, SHRIMP!!
There is something for everyone at the Festival … and admission is FREE!!
Celebrating its 40th year in 2011, the Festival attracts over 300,000 people who come to view Fine Arts and Arts & Crafts from over 200 artists during the four day Festival. 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.
Like to play in the sand? The Festival holds a family friendly sand sculpture contest. Bring the family & your best sand sculpting skills!
