September 19, 2015

Enjoy a true taste of the South at the Golconda Shrimp Festival. The event features a farmers’ market, arts and crafts tables, live music, and, of course, all the shrimp you can eat.

At noon, culinary experts and novices alike offer up their best shrimp recipes and compete for the title of Best in Show. Guests can have a deep-fried Oreo or Twinkie for dessert, and those 21 and up can stroll through the beer garden.

Other events include water and taxi rides, a Little Miss Shrimp pageant, and live music and dancing in the streets.
