A coastal favorite, the Jekyll Island Shrimp and Grits Festival, presented by Southern Living, combines the classic southern dish with family-friendly entertainment, artists market, live music, kids' zone, food, a craft brew fest, and more.

The island comes alive during this fun-filled weekend. Hurricane Irma may have canceled our plans last year, but this year's event is bound to be the best yet.

Mark your calendars for this award-winning three-day event held the third weekend in September in the Historic District of Jekyll Island, Georgia.
