Last year the Hilton Head Island Seafood Fest was extended to two days and proved to be just what the seafood goers needed! It will be a two-day event again this year, marking the 6th year for this favorite family festival.
Held each year in April, as the days continue to increase in warm temps averaging 72 to 78 degrees F, the Seafood Fest features more than a dozen local restaurants preparing their seafood specialties for your taste buds! Add in the “Iron Chef” – style competition, live entertainment by Cranford & Sons and The Headliners, other local artists, a silent auction, and a kids zone, you can see why we need 2 days to have all this fun!
This year The Seafood Fest is Friday, April 5, from 5-8pm and Saturday, April 6, from 11am-5pm at Shelter Cove Community Park.
This family friendly event helps to raise money for the David M. Carmines Memorial Foundation, which benefits the American Cancer Society, MD Anderson Cancer Research Center & Island Recreation Scholarship Fund. The Foundation was established by the Carmines family, owners of Hudson’s Seafood House on the Docks restaurant, in memory of their son, and the seafood festival is the organization’s main fundraiser.
