Gullah/Geechee Seafood Festival & Famlee Day is a Celebration of Restoration and Recovery
The Gullah/Geechee Fishing Association, the St. Helena Community Market, All Mobile Productions™ (AMP™) and the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition invite you to a celebration to give thanks for the blessings GOD provided to St. Helena Island during and after the recent storms and over the many generations. Due to the damage to the Hunting Island State Park, the venue has been changed.

Vital information regarding recovery resources will be provided for FREE as well. There will also be sign up lists for volunteers that will assist elders with their yards and minor home repairs to move our restoration process along. Volunteers are also needed for food distributions and meals that are going on throughout the county. Please come out to become a volunteer or make a donation toward the recovery effort.
There will be a craft and vendor market to help the economic sustainability of our community. Items and meals will be for sale.
