Shrimp, Music, Shopping & More
The St. George Lighthouse Association is thrilled to announce that it will be hosting the 3rd Annual SGI ShrimpFest on February 10th, from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm in the western parking area adjacent to Lighthouse Park.
This year’s festival will be a one-day outdoor event offering patrons the opportunity to dine on the freshest, most exquisite local shrimp dishes while enjoying great live musical entertainment and shopping with our many unique vendors.
Tickets for the event are $5.00 for ages 13+ and are available online below or in person at the Lighthouse Gift Shop. Tickets will also be available at the gate on the day of the festival. Children twelve years of age and under are FREE but still require the “purchase” of a free ticket for entry.
The SGI Shrimp Festival, partially funded by the Franklin County TDC, 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. To that end, festival organizers are looking for event sponsors and supporters. Those interested in becoming a festival sponsor or individual supporter can sign up below.
Musical entertainment will be announced soon.
