Where to Stay for the Beaufort Shrimp Festival

The annual Shrimp Festival in Beaufort, SC is a must-attend event for seafood lovers. And there’s no better place to stay during the festival than at The Cuthbert House Inn. This historic inn offers a unique and charming atmosphere that perfectly complements the festival’s Southern hospitality.

Beaufort Shrimp Festival

The annual shrimp festival in Beaufort, South Carolina is a highly anticipated event that draws locals and visitors alike. Held every year in October, the festival celebrates the region’s rich shrimp industry and the delicious seafood that it produces. The festival’s main attraction is the endless variety of shrimp dishes that are available for sampling, from classic shrimp and grits to creative dishes that showcase the versatility of this beloved seafood.

Aside from the food, the festival also features live music, arts and crafts vendors, and a variety of family-friendly activities including the Run Forrest Run 5k. Visitors can take part in shrimp boat tours, watch cooking demonstrations, and even compete in a shrimp peeling contest. The festival is a great way to experience the unique culture of Beaufort and the surrounding Lowcountry region, and admission is free!

One of the highlights of the festival is the chance to meet and interact with local shrimpers, who are the backbone of the region’s shrimp industry. Visitors can learn about the history of shrimping in Beaufort and gain a greater appreciation for the hard work and dedication that goes into bringing this delicious seafood to market

We also love spending time outside during this time of year. October tends to bring beautiful weather in the Lowcountry. Historically the temperature rarely falls below 63°F or exceeds 87°F. Lovely!
