The 25th Annual Awendaw Blue Crab Festival

Saturday, August 27th, 2022
Awendaw Municipal Park & Lake
7900 Doar Road, Awendaw

Grab your mallet or crab cracker and get ready to dive into hundreds of bushels of sweet, delicious Lowcountry blue crab at the 25th Annual Awendaw Blue Crab Festival.

This event began in 1994 when a small group of Awendaw residents gathered under the live oak tree at Town Hall to eat a few bushels of crabs. Since then the Awendaw Blue Crab Festival has grown to an annual event celebrating Awendaw life and delicious steamed Lowcountry blue crabs. 

Over the years, the festival has moved locations to accommodate the growing crowd. Today is it held at The Town of Awendaw Municipal Park, located at 7900 Doar Road. The 50-acre lake at Awendaw Park serves as the backdrop for this family event featuring food, beverage & art vendors, live music, a large kids area, hay rides, boat rides, dancing, and of course, Lowcountry Blue Crabs galore!

We are excited to welcome more than 3000 guests from all over the country to the 2022 Awendaw Blue Crab Festival and we would love for you to join us!
