Shrimpfest is a community celebration of the Hood Canal Spot Shrimp.

Brinnon ShrimpFest 2021 has been cancelled.

In 1993, a small group of community volunteers held the first Shrimpfest as a community celebration of the Hood Canal Spot Shrimp. After several years the festival grew, adding out-of-town vendors and entertainment. With this shift, a Non-profit Emerald Towns Alliance (ETA) was created to operate the annual festival. Profits from the festival would go to community non-profits in need of financial assistance.
Over the years, many organizations have benefited from ETA funds, such as the Food Bank, Boys Scouts, School Scholarships and the Essential Supplies Program (ESP) through World Vision.

Due to Covid challenges and unforeseen circumstances, 2021 ShrimpFest is cancelled.

The sale of shrimp is our primary fundraiser. At the time we were given notice of the delivery of shrimp, we learned the storage freezer was not operational. We were unable to identify enough commercial freezer space.

As a community we are disappointed that we had to cancel the festival. We thank the volunteers, businesses, and schools for their support. We look forward to ShrimpFest 2022!
