Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival – CANCELED

Canceled for 2020, Sneads Ferry

Calling all seafood lovers – this festival is shrimply the best!

What makes the annual Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival so ‘a-peeling’ is the nearly 2,000 pounds of local shrimp served throughout the weekend. Now in its 50th year, the Shrimp Festival includes a variety of family-friendly events, like a car show, parade and live music. More than 20 vendors will be on site to serve up a variety of food for guests.

This year’s festival will take place at 126 Park Lane. Proceeds from the festival will be donated to various organizations throughout the Sneads Ferry community.
