Music

Live music, it’s the perfect accompaniment to shrimp & grits, arts & crafts, and friends & family. With two stages in the festival, you’ll find a tune for tapping your toes or cutting a rug.

Main Stage

The premier stage of the festival, it’s literally in the center of all the action, and adjacent to all of the delicious food, including the restaurants serving up shrimp & grits. The Main Stage will be packed with two days of talent. From favorite bands from throughout the coast to specialty acts for  the holiday season, this stage will be a festival favorite.
