Shrimp, Music, Children's Games & More!
May 14, 2022 11:00am-5:00pm
The St. George Lighthouse Association is thrilled to announce that it will be hosting the 1st Annual SGI ShrimpFest on May 14, 2022, from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm in the western parking area adjacent to Lighthouse Park.
This family and community-oriented festival will be a one-day event offering patrons great outdoor musical entertainment, a fairway of games for the children sponsored by the Forgotten Coast Parrothead Club, and the chance to dine on the freshest and most delicious local shrimp dishes.
Musical entertainment will be provided by two awesome acts. Local favorites, Hot Mess with special guest JB Babich, will start the day with their blend of Zydeco Swamp Pop and the legendary, Bill Wharton, a.k.a "The Sauce Boss", will be headlining this year’s festival. Bill’s music is a fun blend of roots and swampy Florida blues-rock. This singer/songwriter is a slide guitar player and gumbo chef…cooking up a mind-blowing gumbo right on stage then passing out the tasty results at set's end. If you like lowdown-boogie blues, you are going to love The Sauce Boss.
Tickets for the event will be $5.00 and are available online now or in person at the Lighthouse Gift Shop beginning April 5th. Children four years of age and under are free but still require the “purchase” of a free ticket for entry. Because this is a first-year event and we want to be sure to serve all attendees, there will only be a maximum of 2500 tickets sold, so grab yours while you can!
The SGI Shrimp Festival is a fundraiser for the St. George Lighthouse Association (SGLA). The SGLA is a 501c3 non-profit Florida corporation organized to preserve, maintain, and promote the Cape St. George Lighthouse. Funds raised are vital for the on-going maintenance and enhancement of the Lighthouse, the Keeper’s House Museum, and Lighthouse Park.
