We are Proud to be the Official Shrimp Festival of North Carolina!!

The Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival celebrates its 50th year on August 7th, 8th & 9th, 2020. A tradition that began as a way to honor the local fishing community has grown over the years, drawing crowds of more than 12,000 people.

On May 3rd, 2011, the festival was named The Official Shrimp Festival of North Carolina by a bill sponsored by Senator Harry Brown and passed by the North Carolina General Assembly. This begins a new milestone in the history of the festival. So, one begs to ask, How did the Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival get started? One morning in 1971, a group of businessmen got together over coffee and decided it was time they shared their delicious shrimp with the outside world and honor the fishing community that harvests them.

It was decided at that time that each subsequent festival would be held the second weekend of August. “The reason they picked August is because its the peak of shrimping season here”, according to Bernice Guthrie, who has been involved with the festival for the past 40 years and is the only original member still involved with the festival. “Plus, when school is out, more visitors and tourists are able to come”, she added.

Please join us in Celebrating our remarkable fishing community! Come out-watch the parade, listen to the bands, ride the rides and eat some delicious wild caught local shrimp!

Sincerely,

The 2019 Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival Committee

I would like to hear from somebody in regards to being a vendor. I've called and left several messages but no return call. Any help would be appreciated.
Can Festival Shirts be bought on fb page and given to someone attending now?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxSQvFS2YKE&feature=youtu.be It was very hot today in Jacksonville but that didn't stop people from having a great time. This is Sneads Ferry's 50th anniversary hosting the Shrimp Festival. There was great food out here and obviously shrimp was one of the main dishes. This event is held from the 9th - 11th. Please come out and enjoy the amusement park and the food! There was also fireworks a night but I left due to rain.
I'm sad to say this may be our last year attending the Shrimp Festival due to the cost. It cost our family of 3 $45 to attend. While that includes 5 unlimited rides, rides are not something we necessarily came for. The live music was a very nice touch, but an open field in 90+ degree weather with no real cover or seating made it impossible to enjoy. The bands deserve more. The layout was much better than in years past, but we need more value for the dollar. You can attend the NC State Fair for $13 at the gate, and while that doesn't include rides, what you receive in return is much more. I do hope the festival committee considers changing the admission structure. Having grown up in Eastern North Carolina and attended many festivals, it just seems unusual to pay admission for a festival.
Thank you so VERY much, the parade was wonderful, so enjoyable even considering the temps... but y'all did a fantastic job and I know there was a tremendous amount of time put into the planning... THANK YOU
Do they run any golf carts or transports for handicap folks?
