The music begins as soon as the festival opens at 10 a.m. each day and runs through 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday.
In addition to 300 vendors offering fine art, arts & crafts, the fest features a retail marketplace, outdoor village, children’s activity village, sand castle contest and a 10K/5K run. The best of the best youth talent from Baldwin County will compete in the Shrimp Festival Singing for Scholarships on Saturday and local chefs will compete in a restaurant challenge. Of course, the fest will showcase shrimp cooked just about any way you can imagine. But there are plenty of non-shrimp dishes offered. For more info, visit
