A FAMILY ORIENTED EVENT & EXCELLENT VACATION SPOT FOR ALL TYPES OF REUNION ACTIVITIES, COMMUNITY GROUPS AND FRIENDLY GATHERINGS

Storytelling, dancing, the sounds of jazz, blues, reggae and African drums are some of the things you'll see and hear. The Vendor Market is filled with Arts and Crafts and the Food Court is filled with local cuisine and traditional Gullah favorites.

Lest We Forget 

& The Decoration Day Play      are educational segments of the Festival where we concentrate on teaching and preserving history.

Due to the spread of the Coronavirus, we had to cancel the 2020 Gullah Festival and the scheduled Art Contest. However, thanks to Ms. Brenda Singleton, Art teacher at Whale Branch Elementary School in Beaufort, SC, we have some art to present to you.

The video is of student work inspired by the art of Gullah artist Jonathan Green and the press release is for a project completed in connection with the Sheldon Township's Everybody Counts initiative.  Shout out to Ms. Singleton and all Teachers who tap into the creativity of young minds. We appreciate you!

EMBRACE YOUR GULLAH ROOTS

#NEVERFORGET

The Hour of Power Worship Service normally takes place on Sunday of the festival weekend at 9AM. This worship experience on the waterfront is one that you would not want to miss. When we are able to meet again, in 2022, join us at the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park and be prepared to have your spirit lifted!
