Lowcountry Shrimp Festival and Blessing of the Fleets
The Lowcountry Shrimp festival is back after a two-year hiatus! For 43 years, McClellanville has hosted the Lowcountry Shrimp Festival and Blessing of the Fleet. Just a short drive off Highway 17 to Pinckney Street, the annual event focuses on blessing the village’s shrimping fleet and celebrates local boat captains and crews preparing to kick off the shrimping season. Boats of all sizes decorated with colorful pennants and flags parade down Jeremy Creek to be blessed by the prayers of local clergy members for a safe, bountiful shrimping season. After the blessing, a floral wreath is laid on the waters to memorialize those lost at sea. Complete with local music and food vendors, this family-friendly event is one you won’t want to miss.
