Discover Art at National Shrimp Fest on Gulf Shores Island

Come for the art and stay for the food and fun when you attend the 38th Annual National Shrimp Festival Oct. 8 - 11 at the Public Beach in Gulf Shores. Each year hundreds of artists from around the world compete for a coveted space in the juried art section of this popular event. You are really the winner since you can view their creations in the relaxed atmosphere of the beach setting. In addition to the fine arts there are rows and rows of arts and crafts to explore just steps from the sand and surf of the Gulf.

My best advice, as a local resident who has attended the Shrimp Fest for 37 years, is to arrive at least by Wednesday night so you can begin your adventure on the Festival's opening day (Thursday, Oct. 8) and plan to attend all four days if you can. Be sure to make room in your vehicle to carry back your treasures.

I would also advise you to take advantage of Meyer Real Estate's Shrimp Fest Special which is an unbelievable 50% discount on the rental of remaining condos and houses.
Rather than paying more for this special occasion you can actually save on your accommodations and have more money to buy art.

See you at the Shrimp Fest.
