Get ready to experience one of the best seafood festivals on the map during this week-long extravaganza held in and around Hilton Head Island. Where artfully prepared food meets the South’s coastal heritage, the Hilton Head Island Seafood Festival will certainly exceed all expectations during this year’s lineup.
Events over the course of the festival range from celebrity guest chef dinners and culinary demonstrations, to excursions off-island that highlight both local history and the fishermen that make it all possible. Pair that with wine tastings, fresh catch specials, fishing instruction, and more!
Here are the scheduled events for this year’s festival.
Tickets are available for the festival’s main event scheduled for Saturday, February 24th from 1:00-4:30pm. Held at Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina, this family-friendly event will offer live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, samplings from more than 100 food and beverage vendors, and more.
The Hilton Head Island Seafood Festival brings the community together, contributes to many organizations and foundations on the island, and is the primary fundraiser for the David M. Carmines Memorial Foundation. Established by the Carmines family to serve the local communities in honor of their son, the foundation promotes cancer research among other charitable causes.
