Calling all seafood and jazz lovers! You're invited to the 48th annual shrimp festival.
 
For the Whole Family to Enjoy 
The shrimp festival is a great time for visitors and locals to mingle, enjoy relaxing music, and eat some delicious grub. This is a four-day event starting October 10th running until October 13th. The event usually attracts a large crowd thanks to the many local food vendors who will be supplying the crowd with some of the tastiest seafood you've ever had! The shrimp festival is projecting roughly 300,000 people to come in attendance; not only to eat great food but to enjoy the many talented acts who will be entertaining the crowd. 
 
Free Admission 
The best part about the annual shrimp festival is that admission is free! You're welcome to come enjoy the many musical acts including genres such as blues, Motown, southern rock, jazz, zydeco, and country. Different food vendors will be set up throughout the festival ranging in price per plate. Roughly 10,000 pounds of shrimp will be prepared per day for this event thanks to the proud sponsors and organizers: the Seafood Association of the Alabama Seafood Marketing Commission and Wind Creek Casino. The event is being held at Gulf Shores Main Public Beach (Gulf Place) located on 101 Gulf Shores Pkwy.
