Shrimp Festival Cancelled

The Annual National Shrimp Festival has been cancelled for the second year in a row due to COVID-19. Previously scheduled for October 7-10 (Shrimp Festival Planned For October In Gulf Shores), it expected approximately 250,000 attendees. Organizers stated, “Our mission at the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber, and through the Gateway Initiative, is to support our business community by providing commerce opportunities and workforce solutions. With the help of many partners, it has been decided that this cannot be safely done when gathering a large number of people and vendors in a confined space over four days…. Our goal will be to work hard in making improvements to the festival in 2022, not only providing a quality experience, but also to improve crowd monitoring and better controlled access.”
