The 2011 Jekyll Island Shrimp and Grits Festival is right around the corner and my stomach is already growling! Grits are a staple in the South and pairing them with shrimp makes just about the most perfect meal! You can't get any more coastal than this delicious dish.
Mark your calendar for September 16-18, 2011 in the Jekyll Island Historic District. The weekend features an amateur and professional shrimp & grits cooking competition, shrimp boat tours, cooking demonstrations, book signings, a large arts and crafts vendor village, live entertainment, and a kid-friendly fun zone.
Call 866-553-5955 to make your room reservations because this festival is a "must-do" on Jekyll Island!
