Little River Blue Crab FestivalThe Little River Blue Crab Festival is an annual event that takes place along the historic waterfront in scenic Little River South Carolina.
Although the Blue Crab Festival has become recognized as one of the Myrtle Beach area's most popular festivals, the town of Little River is quite different than Myrtle Beach, the flashy tourist town about twenty miles to the south.
Up here on the north end, we enjoy a slower pace, a more family oriented lifestyle, and most of us know our neighbors and those who live down the street from us.
In 2011, the Little River Blue Crab festival celebrated its 30th year. The popular festival was started three decades ago by a small group of local artists and waterfront residents. It is now the largest annual event in Little River and continues to attract thousands to our scenic waterfront each passing year.
The original purpose of the festival was to support the waterfront businesses. As decades have passed, the festival has gone from the control of the original waterfront locals, to the chamber, to a private corporation, and now to a collaboration of different entities.
Mark Your Calendars for the Next FestivalThe 32nd Annual Blue Crab Festival was held at the Little River waterfront on Saturday, May 18th and Sunday, May 19th, 2013.
As is the custom, the next festival will be held on the weekend following Mother's Day.
