Like most everyone, we hate to see summer end, but it does mean one good thing … The National Shrimp Festival is almost here!
One of the most popular seafood events in the nation, The National Shrimp Festival brings over 300,000 people to the boardwalk of Gulf Shores’ main beach to celebrate fresh Gulf of Mexico Shrimp and other tasty foods; and let’s not forget great weather. October 13th through 16th marks the festival’s 40th running and will feature over 300 vendors bringing arts & crafts, various types of seafood dishes and unique retail options to everyone joining in on the festivities.
Along with the delicious shrimp, seafood and fun activities for the whole family, The National Shrimp Festival also features continuous music on two stages throughout the weekend. Featuring everything from local favorites such as Brent Burns and Roman Street to big name rockers Firehouse, Warrant, Colt Ford and Blackfoot, there will sure to be a show to please everyone in the crowd.
The producers of the festival, the Alabama Gulf Coast Area Chamber of Commerce, have also announced that the Shrimp Fest 10K will be returning. Starting and finishing at the Orange Beach Sportsplex, the race will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 15th and will take participants through a scenic course around the area.
