World-Famous Blue Crab Festival

What began in 1981 as a small waterfront gathering, the now ‘World-Famous’ Blue Crab Festival has grown into a premier event that draws visitors from all over the Country. When the Blue Crab Festival began, its main goal was to bring visitors to the historic waterfront in support of the local restaurants, businesses, accommodations and entire community as a whole. A few vendors, eager to be a part of the new event, set up under the mossy strewn live oak trees… and a festival was born. Later, music and entertainment, a bevy of food displaying the areas traditional seafood specialties and unique arts & crafts were added… and here we are, more than thirty years later. This year’s festival organizers expect over 50,000 people to attend our fun filled, two day festivities. Always the third weekend in May, Join us on May 16th and 17th, 2015 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the Little River Historic Waterfront. Please visit our website for free parking information.
