Community organizations in Aransas Pass are busily making preparations for the 68th Annual Shrimporee. The Aransas Pass Chamber of Commerce, along with numerous other entities, non-profit organizations and volunteers are gearing-up for what has the potential to be one of the most successful events of the season!

Each year, Shrimporee has a significant impact on the community of Aransas Pass and has been known to host over 55,000 visitors in a single weekend. There are so many organizations, including the Chamber, that depend on this festival to fund programs and scholarships for the entire year. This event brings together many of our local non profit organizations working together to support many worthwhile causes. Whether you are a sponsor, a vendor, a volunteer or a visitor … your contribution is important. A lot of hard work leading up to and during Shrimporee make this a grand event!

The Allen Samuels Aransas Pass Stage will host a variety of fun, family entertainment through-out the day leading up to major entertainment at night while the Main Stage will have a great line-up of bands performing continuously from opening on Friday to closing on Sunday. Along with great performers, visitors can expect to enjoy a wide variety of music from up and coming, as well as local artists. All three stages will be providing continuous entertainment that should appeal to young and old alike.
