HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (May 2017) — A fun-loving crowd of islanders and visitors alike will flock this summer to Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina, part of Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, to attend the Southern outdoor phenomenon known as HarbourFest.

Named a Top 20 Event by the Southeastern Tourism Society and a Best of Southern Fests by The South magazine, HarbourFest features music from the beloved Shannon Tanner, weekly Tuesday night fireworks and family friendly entertainment at Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina, located mid-island at mile marker 8 across from Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.

On Memorial Day, popular family entertainer Shannon Tanner returns to kick off his 29th season on Hilton Head Island with two shows each day at 6:30 PM and 8 PM through Sunday, September 3.

Known for his trademark baseball hat with propeller, fan-favorite Tanner has popularized catchy, sing-along songs like “My Hair Had a Party Last Night” and “Flying Purple People Eater.” His multi-generational show gets the crowd involved through energetic and animated singing and dancing.

Many parents who attended his shows as children return yearly with their own families. Tanner loves to write inspirational notes on kids’ beanie hats, signing a new panel every year. “We’re in the business of creating memories every night at HarbourFest for vacationing families,” Tanner says.

Not to be outdone, Cappy the Clown will also be at Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina starting Memorial Day Weekend from 6 PM to 9 PM through Monday, September 4 to delight audiences with fun entertainment, as well as face painting, bounce houses, balloon animals, arts & crafts, practice putting and a variety of interactive games and activities.

Fireworks serve as the centerpiece for Harbourfest. This year, firework shows will be held on Tuesday nights from June 13-August 15, beginning at dusk and weather permitting, as well as Hilton Head’s largest fireworks display on July 4th. If Tuesday night fireworks are cancelled due to weather, rain date will be Wednesday following, also weather permitting. A variety of guided water tours and cruises are available for a view of the fireworks from the water.

On Thursday evenings from June 15-August 17, HarbourFest turns into a Caribbean paradise with a special Parrot Palooza event featuring Tanner and his Jimmy Buffet tribute band, the Oyster Reefers. The group will perform two shows Thursdays at 6:30 and 8 PM, playing island-inspired tunes as part of this Caribbean sunset celebration.

HarbourFest and Parrot Palooza are free and open to the public. Food and drinks are available for purchase. Events are weather permitting and subject to change. For more information, call 843-686-9098 or visit
