Kids’ Zone

The Jekyll Island Shrimp & Grits Festival is fun for kids of all ages. But in the Kids’ Zone, your little ones can jump, swing, bounce, run, and paint their way to fun!

Festival-Long Activities

On-going activities will take place throughout the Festival to keep kids (and parents!) happy.  Looking for some excitement? Check out the rock wall, quad-bungee, zip line, mechanical bulldog, and inflatable bounce houses & slides. On track to be an art vendor in the 2036 Shrimp & Grits Festival? Hone your skills with The Scrap Exchange’s Make N Take, an eco-friendly creative arts activity. Kids can create their own rocket ships, costumes, robots, and more with a collection of clean, recycled materials.
