The Shrimp (Festival) must go on

From staff reports

The 2020 Beaufort Shrimp Festival will not be canceled.

But thanks to COVID-19, the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce is having to re-imagine the event for this year because of limitations on large gatherings and concerns about public health.

Instead of a single-weekend event, Shrimp Festival Season will celebrate the fall shrimp season and highlight the region’s culinary traditions spanning three weeks – Sept. 18 through Oct. 4. Locals and visitors are invited to restaurants, shops, and outdoor venues across the Beaufort region over three successive weeks to enjoy the best of Lowcountry food and lifestyle.

Throughout Shrimp Festival Season, participating restaurants region-wide will feature a specially priced fresh shrimp “tasting menu” item and entrée and local shops will feature seafood themed promotions.

Visit BeaufortShrimpFestival.com for the latest information and up-to-date list of participating restaurants.
