47th Annual National Shrimp Festival ~ Gulf Shores, Alabama Events by Southern
Gulf Shores draws crowds of more than 300,000 for the National Shrimp Festival each year. The weekend offers fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood, live music, and plenty of outdoor activities. With all the excitement coming to Coastal Alabama, you need to book your Gulf Shores vacation rental now!
Of course, the main attraction is sampling shrimp dishes. More than 200 pounds of shrimp will be prepared each day and given away at tasting tents. To accompany the main course, enjoy a side of blues, Motown, southern rock, jazz, zydeco, and country.
In addition to live music, explore the fishing, boating, and hunting activities. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang can check out the sandcastle sculpture contest or a singing competition. Or, enjoy the Children’s Activity Village where kids can have their faces painted and sing karaoke.
For the collectors in attendance, make your way to more 200 art booths and check out the car display. Learn more here.
