Gulf Shores is home to the National Shrimp Festival every October

National Shrimp Festival in Gulf Shores Alabama, crowded day at the festival.  You won't see many bikinis in October here.

Held the second full weekend in October, the annual Gulf Shores National Shrimp Festival shouldn't be missed. Here you will enjoy arts, crafts a retail marketplace and of course... Shrimp.

The National Shrimp Festival, which started in 1971 attracts over 300,000 visitors.  They wander through over 300 vendors booths checking out the fine arts and crafts from over 200 artists. The shrimp lovers come from miles around, making it one of the nation's premier outdoor festivals.

Music, to your ears. With two stages, your guaranteed continuous music from various musicians playing all kinds of music from jazz, blue grass, pop...

Shrimp of all kinds and flavors, raw, boiled, broiled, Cajun, dipped...certainly a great southern shrimp feast. If your not a shrimp fan, come anyways. They've got lots of other seafood and American fair.The National Shrimp Festival - Gulf Shores Alabama, vew from the Sandy White Beach.  Not bikini's on the beach today.

Bring the kids!  They've got a great Children's Activity Village where they make their own arts and crafts. They also have other fun activities to keep the little one's busy (and happy).

Are you a runner? If so, think about joining the 10 k run which kicks off the National Shrimp Festival every year. The course is pretty flat, so it offers a great opportunity for runners of all skill levels.

There is something for everyone at the Festival thanks to the Alabama Gulf Coast Area Chamber of Commerce, who tirelessly work and plan all year long to put on this festival.
