Officials announced that the 49th Annual National Shrimp Festival has been canceled for 2020 then again in 2021 due to concerns around the spread of Coronavirus. The annual festival was expected to take place in October. The Coastal Alabama Business Chamber hosts this free event annually, bringing together music, food, entertainment, and more to the Gulf Shores. 

We all look forward to it returning in 2022.
