The St. George Lighthouse Association is thrilled to announce the upcoming 3rd Annual SGI ShrimpFest, a celebration of succulent shrimp dishes, vibrant music, unique shopping, and a festive atmosphere that promises a wonderful experience for all.
This year’s festival will take place on Saturday, February 10th, from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm in the western parking area adjacent to Lighthouse Park. This one-day outdoor event will be a shrimp-lover’s paradise, as we bring together local culinary talents sharing their mouthwatering shrimp delicacies. Our array of shrimp dishes promises to tantalize your taste buds.
Adding to the festivities, there will be a curated group of arts and crafts vendors showcasing unique products, local nonprofit exhibitors, raffle items, a beer and wine station, hot cocoa and coffee, and a live musical performance by The Blues Factor Band that will keep the energy high and the good times rolling throughout the event. Do not be fooled by the name! Blues is not all the band plays. If you like the Blues Brothers Music, Classic Rock, The Rolling Stones, Motown, Funk, R&B and ALL the TOP HITS from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today, you will love The Blues Factor Band!
Tickets for the event are $5.00 for ages 13+ and are available now online at www.sgishrimpfest.com or in person at the Lighthouse Gift Shop. Tickets will also be available at the gate on the day of the festival. Children twelve years of age and under are FREE but still require the “purchase” of a free ticket for entry. Grab your tickets, mark your calendar, and prepare for a day of fun. Whether you’re a seafood enthusiast, a music lover, or simply looking for a day of family fun on St. George Island, the SGI ShrimpFest has something for everyone.
The SGI Shrimp Festival, partially funded by the Franklin County TDC, is a fundraiser for the St. George Lighthouse Association (SGLA). The SGLA is a 501c3 non-profit Florida corporation organized to preserve, maintain, and promote the Cape St. George Lighthouse. Funds raised are vital for the ongoing maintenance and enhancement of the Lighthouse, the Keeper’s House Museum, and Lighthouse Park. To that end, festival organizers are looking for event sponsors and supporters. Those interested in becoming a festival sponsor or individual supporter can go online at www.sgishrimpfest.com to sign up.
