ResortQuest offers numerous Sanibel vacation rentals near the Shell Fair and Show

Sanibel Island Shell Fair and Show

Since 1937, the Sanibel Community Association has held the largest and longest running Shell Fair and Show in the United States. The Shell Fair takes place March 5 - 7, 2009 at 2173 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel Island.

There is something for everyone at the fair. A family favorite is the display of shells by 5th graders from Sanibel Elementary School. Elementary school students prepare long in advance to help educate fascinated adults and children about the activity of the sea life in the aquariums at the Live Shell Exhibit. This is the only time shells are used in any of our activities and they are returned to the Gulf after this event.

The Sanibel Shellcrafters have two big tents that hold the many varieties of arrangements, wall hangings and jewelry, all created from shells. Many species of Sanibel shells are also on display. Come out for the day and enjoy the local cuisine and entertainment provided by the Sanibel Community Association.
