EXPERIENCE SHELTER COVE HARBOUR AND MARINA 2023 FIREWORKS & THE 34th YEAR OF HARBOURFEST ON HILTON HEAD ISLAND
HarbourFest returns for its 34th year to Hilton Head Island’s Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina with 12 memorable fireworks shows. The most popular multi-week festival runs from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.
This summer, Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina on Hilton Head Island, SC further bolsters its reputation as the place to be for fireworks featuring 12 weeks of shows in 2023.
HarbourFest at Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina is a three-decade-long-and-running tradition and Hilton Head’s most popular multi-week summer festival. Named a “Top 20 Event” by the Southeastern Tourism Society and a “Best of Southern Fests” by The South Magazine, generations of families plan their vacations around HarbourFest, which is now in its 34th year, with entertainment that includes shows from island icon Shannon Tanner and children’s activities with Cappy the Clown.
Amazing fireworks serve as HarbourFest’s grand centerpiece. This year, 12 nights of firework shows will be held on Tuesday nights from June 6th until August 22nd, beginning when the sky is dark, including Hilton Head’s largest fireworks display on Tuesday, July 4th. On fireworks nights, kids can also enjoy bounce houses and train rides around the marina promenade. We appreciate the continued generous support from the Town of Hilton Head Island and all of our sponsors.
This is Shelter Cove’s eighth year working with pyrotechnics master Brent Fisher and his expert crew from Falcon Fireworks, who consistently deliver memorable shows for all in attendance.
