St Clare’s Seafood Festival

Every Memorial Day Weekend, St. Clare’s Church in Waveland, Mississippi hosts its Annual FREE Seafood Festival with tons of great music and even more fun. They have a huge carnival for the kids, good local eats and plenty of seats for you and the family! Nestled off the beach on the Mississippi Coast, St. Clare’s enjoys the beautiful gulf breeze, keeping it cool, even in the late spring time. That’s why we make it out to this festival every year, and the kids love it! They can ride and mom and dad can enjoy some famous tunes from local artists.
