Produced by Main Street Beaufort, USA and the South Carolina Shrimpers Association, the presenting sponsor for the event is the Beaufort area’s premier VW dealer, Hilton Head Volkswagen.

“We have sponsored this event for many years,” said Warner Peacock, President and CEO of the New River Auto Mall. “This is a great opportunity to showcase the best of our Lowcountry restaurants and to support the efforts of Main Street Beaufort.”

Here’s what the Beaufort Shrimp Festival has lined up for Lowcountry residents:
