Beaufort Shrimp Festival Must Go On!

Beaufort Shrimp Festival 2020

Due to limitations on large gatherings and concerns about public health during the COVID19 pandemic, the Beaufort Shrimp Festival is being reimagined for 2020!

Instead of a single weekend event, Shrimp Festival Season will celebrate the fall shrimp season and highlight the region’s culinary traditions spanning three weeks. We invite locals and Southeastern visitors to restaurants, shops, and outdoor venues across the Beaufort region over three successive weeks to enjoy the best of Lowcountry food and lifestyle.

Beaufort Shrimp Festival September 18 - October 4, 2020

Throughout Shrimp Festival Season, participating restaurants region-wide will feature a specially priced fresh shrimp “tasting menu” item and entrée and local shops will feature seafood themed promotions.

Visit our website link below for the latest information and up-to-date list of participating restaurants to sample the bounty of our Lowcountry waters and celebrate the long tradition of the shrimping industry right here in Beaufort!
