The Shrimp & Grits Festival is rooted in this southern staple and the belief that good food brings us all together. Throughout the weekend, you’ll find a plethora of chefs and cooks sharing their favorite recipe for shrimp & grits. Let local food trucks tempt you with their unique, and varied taste treats.

Check back later for a full roster of food vendors.
