Beaufort Shrimp Festival 2020


The Shrimp Must Go On!

September 18th – October 4th, 2020 • Beaufort, Port Royal & the Sea Islands, South Carolina

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, from September 18th through October 4th, 2020.

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.

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.

Keep checking this website 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!
