Shrimp & Grits Festival celebrates classic Southern fare and culture


Just north of the First Coast, the Jekyll Island Shrimp & Grits Festival took place Sept. 14-16.

Presented by Southern Living, the coastal favorite event was held in Jekyll Island’s National Historic Landmark District, combining classic southern fare with family-friendly entertainment, an artists market, live music, a kids zone, food, a craft brew fest and more.

During the three-day event, attendees visiting the Southern Living Pavilion had a chance to watch several demonstrations given by experts on cooking, styling and florals. Event guests also enjoyed learning about local wildlife at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center Experience, as well as watching top chefs in Georgia compete for the title of “Georgia’s Best Shrimp & Grits.”
