12 HarbourFest Firework Shows Lit Up Hilton Head Island in 2023

August 22, 2023 HarbourFest Fireworks Finale Video

HarbourFest is Hilton Head Island’s largest multi-week event where tens of thousands of visitors gathered throughout the summer for 12 firework shows, live entertainment and a variety of kids activities. The last HarbourFest fireworks show on August 22, 2023 lit up the sky over Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina closing out our 34th year of HarbourFest.

Shannon Tanner and Cappy the Clown Created Memories for Family Generations

Shannon Tanner performed shows every Monday through Thursday evening with the crowd singing back the words to favorite classics.

Parents danced the night away with their children, some of whom also took to the stage to perform their song of choice.

Shannon incorporated a fun sing-along this summer featuring Taylor Swift's song ‘You Belong with Me’ to bring the Swifties together down on the main stage. Watch above!

Right by the stage is the kindest clown you’ll ever meet – Cappy the Clown. Kids line up to make their face painting request, ask for their favorite balloon animal or to create their own sand art creation. Cappy loved interacting with the kids and reuniting with families over the summer.

HarbourFest Train Rides and Bouncy Houses Add to Guests Hilton Head Vacation Experience

Families enjoyed a scenic train ride together along the Shelter Cove promenade and bouncy houses during fireworks nights this summer.

After all the excitement of music and activities, attendees gathered to face Broad Creek as each firework show began. Everyone at Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina stopped to watch the fireworks light up the sky in every color imaginable.
