Blue crabs

The award winning Blue Crab Festival is back for another year! This traditional May event is a crowd pleaser and is perfect for the whole family. There are great family hotels by Myrtle Beach SC to stay at for this fun event.

The Little River Blue Crab Festival has been a Grand Strand tradition for 32 years. The tradition started in 1981 as a way to bring visitors to the waterfront to support local restaurants and business. The festival bloomed into a huge community event over a few years with dozens of vendors, restaurants, live music and arts and crafts. The festival is returning to the Little River waterfront this year on May 18-19th and organizers expect over 50,000 people to attend the festivities.  There will be tons of great things to do there. There will be live music by the Craig Woolard Band, and the Carolina Soul Band on Saturday with The Fantastic Shakers, and Jim Quick & Coastline performing on Sunday. There will tons of fantastic food vendors from local restaurants and of course plenty of amazing blue crabs. There are always wonderful arts and crafts vendors at the Festival selling a variety of goods from clothes to houseware to décor and much more. There will be plenty of fun for the kids with face painters and other fun in the kids’ area.  This fun event is both family and biker friendly and is the perfect way to spend an amazing weekend in the Grand Strand Area.

There are plenty of amazing resorts in Myrtle Beach and Grand Strand area to stay at for this fun event. Stay at Springmaid Beach Resort for an oceanfront Hotel with a beautiful view of the ocean. The kids will love playing on the beach before you head out for a fun day at the Blue Crab Festival.
