Better Days Ahead: Living Through The Process
Founded in 2013 by Bishop Thomas J. Sills, Pin Point Seafood Festival is a festival that highlights the great taste of seafood from the historical Pin Point community in Savannah, Georgia. The event is sponsored by Sweetfield of Eden Baptist Church. Local seafood is grilled, fried, steamed, broiled, sautéed with generational recipes and served to thousands of individuals who travel across the US to partake in these festivities on an annual basis.
Attendees can expect live music, educational activities, seafood, a variety of other foods, games and other activities for the whole family. Pin Point's part in the seafood industry in Savannah dates back to 1900 with Ben Bond and John Anderson Seafood and A.S. Varn and Sons. This festival is a way to help preserve the legacy. This year's festival will be held September 15, 2018 at 10am. We look forward to seeing you there.
