Maybe you have attended the Shrimp and Grits Festival every year since it first began in 2005, or maybe you have never attended. Regardless, THIS is the year you do not want to miss! Come explore the festival as locals and visitors celebrate one of Georgia’s most famous “crops” and the lowcountry’s signature dish, shrimp & grits.
The 2015 Jekyll Island Shrimp & Grits Festival will be the best yet. The 10th anniversary celebration will feature a new Jekyll Island Experience Pavilion, an expanded Southern Living Pavilion, dedicated sponsor area, and double the craft brew vendors.

This is a FREE event under the oaks in the National Historic Landmark District on Jekyll Island.
