Gulf Shores ~ Shrimp Festival ~ Year Round Festivals & Events
When you hear the word festival mentioned in Alabama, know it’s going to be a “must attend” affair! Festivals on the Gulf Coast are a year round essential! We’ve got everything from art to shrimp! We don’t bore you with just anything around this part; we throw a party!
In early March, check out the Annual Arts and Crafts Festival. Enjoy free admission, live local entertainment, and fine arts and crafts set up in booths. You can expect around 25,000 people to attend every year. In late March you can look forward to the Elberta Sausage Festival. It is a community event given by the local fire department featuring german sausage and plenty of great country cooked food, local talent, 250 arts and crafts booths, and plenty of family fun and entertainment.
In April the Spring Festival begins. Plan for fun for the entire family plus your furry little friends! They offer a play inflatable area for kids, music, hayrides, face painting, and so much more.
In October you must come see what all the excitement is about when the Annual Shrimp Festival goes on in Gulf Shores. You can eat all the best seafood the town and other franchises have to offer directly on the beach. Walk around for four entire days from morning to night enjoying unique arts and crafts, new singers, and old bands that you’ve been missing since you were a kid. People from all over the world come to enjoy our unique festivals every year and never go home neither unhappy nor hungry. If you would like to see what the Gulf shores and Orange Beach areas have to offer you, then please call our friendly staff to find out what festivals are going on around the date you are looking to come and we will help you find the closest comfortable beach home most convenient for you.
