The Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival is a three-day celebration of fresh seafood, toe-tapping live tunes, and the community of Richmond Hill. A popular tradition for 17 years, the festival now routinely attracts 35,000 attendees to Richmond Hill. And no wonder! They know they’ll be treated to some of the best coastal seafood around!
We’re talking about fresh seafood favorites from some of the area’s best chefs and kitchens. Low country boil, shrimp and grits, fried oysters, crab cakes, lobster rolls, crab soup, shrimp gumbo, and lots more!
It’s not just seafood, either. Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival also includes things like Cajun fried catfish, gyros, bourbon chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, deep-fried cheese balls, pulled pork, and sweet tea. One of the annual highlights you DO NOT want to miss is the kettle corn and peach cobbler cooked by the Boy Scouts. So good!
Beyond the food, which definitely takes center stage, are the arts and crafts booths. Over 50 such booths will be on hand, offering hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind items as well as those showcasing wares from numerous local businesses. Take this opportunity to find the perfect, unique gift for that special someone on your Christmas list!
Finally, the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival draws top-tier entertainers as well. This year’s headliner is country music singer and songwriter Jerrod Niemann! Other’s included in this year’s lineup include Jordan Fisher and The Voice’s Adam Wakefield!
