Shrimp Fest is Back!

Those who’ve lived in the area for a while have fond memories of The Sugar Land Rotary Shrimp Fest. It was the family event of the year for many years – a night where moms, dads and kids of all ages came together for fun and games, and of course, delicious food. Sugar Land Rotary President Marvin Marcell said, “Shrimp Fest dates back to 1989. In recent years, the club tried something else – something a little more sophisticated – but we lost the magic of Shrimp Fest. This year, by popular demand, we’re bringing it back. Shrimp Fest is a proven formula, a fabulous spirit that’s 34 years old!”

Shrimp Fest is Sugar Land Rotary’s largest fundraiser. The workforce is all volunteer, and no funds are kept. One hundred percent of funds raised are invested back into our community. Further, Rotary supports various nonprofits throughout the area. The organization is unique in that they never give only dollars. Rotary also provides volunteer hours to every organization they are involved with financially.

Organizations supported by Sugar Land Rotary include Santa’s Exchange and the upcoming Sugar Land Arts Fest. You, too, can support these fabulous organizations and many more by coming out to Shrimp Fest and enjoying yourself. We can’t wait to see you all!

Shrimp Fest will be held on April 15th from 5 to 8 pm at 1 Fluor building in the cafeteria. Meal and raffle tickets can be purchased in advance at and at the door. Bring the entire family for a night of fun and games, peel-and-eat shrimp and fried catfish. Hot dogs will be available for the littles under 12 for free. Meal tickets are $25 per plate.

Live, silent, raffle and bid board auctions include vacations, golf outings and special dinner packages. The raffle grand prize is a whole house generator, and only 600 raffle tickets will be sold for $100 each!
