Shrimply Delicious

Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival


Shrimp-n-art is a bit like shrimp-n-grits, but bulkier and not as edible. This annual festival (an island tradition for more than 50 years) includes a Pirate Parade, Miss Shrimp Festival Pageant, Kids Fun Zone, Shrimp Run, arts & crafts, antiques, fireworks and live music by The Swingin' Medallions of "Double Shot (of my baby's love)" fame. Go for the local shrimp tacos, stay for the shrimp pie.


May 4-6, Fernandina Beach, shrimpfestival.com
