Enjoy our Famous Crab Fest
Our Lady of the Gulf Church hosts a "Crab Fest" on July 4th weekend every year. People come from far and near to feast on all kinds of seafood, listen to live music and ride the various rides as well as browse through the many crafts available for purchase.
Our Crab Fest is held on the Crab Fest Grounds behind our Community Center overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
Each year, thousands of people enjoy the fine food, the friendship, music and treats.
At least a hundred crafters display their crafts and the crafts are available for purchase.
You can listen to live music all during the weekend and even dance to it with your partner or significant other.
The Fest begins on Friday afternoon and continues until 10 p.m. on Sunday evening. Each day's events run from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
There are various raffles, including a $15,000 dollar raffle.
If you are a crafter and would like to book a space at our Crab Fest, you may download the application form found in the left hand column. You may email it back to us or send it snail mail.
Admission is Free
