May 5-7, 2017

The Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival has been part of Amelia Island for over 50 years. The event title also pays homage to the history of the island as the only U.S. territory under the dominion of eight flags during the past five centuries. Fine arts, crafts and antique vendors complement the offerings of the shops in the historic district, while the food booths bring flavor to this exciting weekend — all run by local non-profit organizations. Events during the festival include a parade of boats, pirate parade, Miss Shrimp Festival Pageant and much more.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The festival area is located approximately 10 miles from the resort
