The Bank and Island Legacy Fund present the Lowcountry Fish and Grits Music Festival on Saturday, October 7, from Noon – 6pm, in association with BurnBush Entertainment, Hilton Head MLK Committee for Justice and the Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor. Featuring live music, arts and crafts vendors, and food trucks, the event will take place at Lowcountry Celebration Park on Hilton Head Island.
The festival will bring awareness to the diverse Gullah Geechee culture and its connection to the vast African diaspora. By bringing together a mix of international and local musical talent, unique crafts, and indigenous cuisine (not easily accessible outside of the Lowcountry), the festival provides a unique cultural experience.
This event is kid friendly with access from the festival to the adjacent Adventure Playground and to The Sandbox Children’s Museum. There will be live performances by recording artists Latrese Bush, Votte Hall, Gwen Yvette, and Angela Bonaparte, Latin percussionist Frankie Quinones, Gullah Geechee Ring Shouters and more. Numerous local artisans and food trucks will be featured throughout the park. Parking and shuttle from USCB Hilton Head campus available through Gullah Heritage Tours.
