The Jekyll Island Authority announced today that, after an ongoing discussion, they will be moving the dates of the Shrimp and Grits Festival. Last year the festival was interrupted by Hurricane Irene and this year's festival-goers kept an eye on the weather throughout the weekend. The festival will continue as scheduled next year and will settle into its new date, the first weekend in November, in 2020.
The dates for Shrimp and Grits are as follows:
2019- September 20-22
2020- November 6-8
2021- November 5-7
2022- November 4-6
