HarbourFest is the signature summer event here in Hilton Head Island, attracting both locals and visitors from all over to partake in live entertainment seven nights a week, delicious food, arts and crafts from a variety of vendors, bouncy houses for the kids, and so much other fun activity. This annual event happens from June through August at Shelter Cove Harbour and the best part – it’s FREE!!
HarbourFest isn’t just about the food and fun, it’s also an excuse to provide one our favorite things — Fireworks! Fireworks aren’t just for 4th of July and New Year’s Eve in Hilton Head, you can see them once a week throughout the entire summer.
The fireworks are every Tuesday starting at dusk and make for the perfect opportunity to gather the entire family and your friends and head to Shelter Cove to see the spectacular show. Just picture the oranges, reds, purples, greens, blues, and every combination popping overhead above the water!
In July, instead of the fireworks happening on Tuesday the 3rd, HarbourFest will have an expanded show on Wednesday, the 4th of July. You can even watch the fireworks from the water with Outside Hilton Head’s special “Fireworks Paddle” guided kayak tours!
Here’s the 2012 HarbourFest fireworks schedule:
Tuesdays, June 19 & 26
Wednesday, July 4 (expanded show) (no show Tuesday, July 3rd)
Tuesdays, July 10, 17, 24 & 31
Tuesdays, August 7 & 14
HarbourFest truly is one of our favorite events here on the Island and will continue to get better and better each year. Something I hope never changes is the entertainment by Shannon Tanner. In fact, this year marks his 24th season of providing light hearted performances for the entire family including sing-a-longs, pop music, classic tunes, and his own original ballads. He has been performing here since 1988 and has become somewhat of a staple during HarbourFest! Shannon Tanner performs Monday through Friday at 6:30pm and 8:00pm.
Spend your summer evenings at Shelter Cove Harbour for this festival of entertainment that will create memories to last a lifetime!
