Are you planning a trip to Historic Downtown Beaufort to enjoy the 78th annual Shrimp Festival this year? On October 7th & 8th, come and enjoy the best fresh-caught shrimp in the world. Chefs and restaurants from all over the Lowcountry provide festival-goers an opportunity to try unique and award winning shrimp dishes. We love tasting dishes from local favorites and trying out new restaurants from our community. This is a perfect opportunity to expand your knowledge of Beaufort area chefs and restaurants.
Admission is free! The concerts and market are free to enter. Each restaurant sets its own prices for individual dishes, so you can try as much or as little as you want. The event also features a great Arts and Crafts market, Kid’s Corner, Educational Corner, and Live Music.
You can choose to participate in the Beaufort Shrimp Festival Run/Walk, on October 8th. This Forrest Gump-themed 5K will take you through historic downtown Beaufort and over the famous Woods Memorial Bridge. You can even take your picture with “Forrest Gump” at the start/finish line.

1. Picking the Best Room for Your Stay
When you call us directly you will always secure the best available room for your trip.

We even offer a few pet-friendly guestrooms!
We love to upgrade our guests whenever possible. Don’t miss out on this benefit by booking through a third party! Room upgrades are offered exclusively to guests who have booked directly through us.

4. Guaranteed Lowest Prices
