OUR EVENTS

Our three annual events promote the goal of making Port Royal a sought-after destination, while maintaining its small-town feel and encouraging people of all ages and backgrounds to come together to enjoy community fellowship, fun and food. The added benefit is that many of these visitors stay in the area and spend their money at local businesses, restaurants and hotels.
