Taking place in Jekyll Island's National Historic Landmark District, the festival features a cook-off, craft brew fest, VIP lounge, cooking demonstrations, book signings, arts and crafts vendors, live entertainment and a kid‐friendly fun zone. And for the first time in Shrimp & Grits history run the Go for the Grits 5K on the last day of the festival. This is a must-attend Jekyll Island festival for any food lover, and it just gets better every year.
