Black Southern Belle Travels: Images of Gullah Festival 2019 in Beaufort, SC

As a proud Lowcountry native, one of my favorite things to do every year is the Gullah Festival in Beaufort, SC. This year was my first year attending as a mother and it was a special experience for me to share with my son and husband. As a way to teach Jackson about his heritage, the Original Gullah Festival connects history and heritage to the present through a festival focused on food, culture, arts, tradition, music and so much more. Packed full of cultural events, Gullah cuisine and authentic connections, I implore anyone who can attend, to make it a point to attend and support the Gullah Festival in Beaufort, SC. Below, I have shared a recap of images of my Gullah Festival experience. What are some of your favorite local festivals in your home state?

Nothing like the views of the waterfront in the Lowcountry. Makes the heat worth it all 🙂

Loved the traditional food from Auntie Pearlie Sue’s. The Okra Rice was absolute perfection.

Jackson is a true Lowcountry baby and can’t get enough of rice!

The sun shines brighter and the sky is bluer during Gullah Festival.
