Welcome to the 68th Annual Beaufort Water Festival!
Hello, my name is Josh Schott. I was born and raised in Beaufort. My Wife, Brooke, and I have two children, Joshua and Ava. Growing up in Beaufort and raising two children here, we have enjoyed what the Beaufort Water Festival has brought to the community over the years. I am thankful to have the distinct honor and privilege to serve as this year’s Commodore. Since 1956, our community has celebrated alongside family and friends, making lasting memories of this time-honored tradition.
The Festival could not exist without the kindness and generosity of our sponsors. Each year, local and national businesses along with benefactors make generous donations to ensure the Festival lives up to its rich tradition of providing top-notch entertainment, sporting events, arts and crafts, and fun for all ages on land and sea – all at a reasonable price.
I would like to thank the community, military, and civic organizations and the hundreds of volunteers who so generously give their time to support the Festival. As an exclusively volunteer event, we rely on this team to ensure the Festival is a resounding success each year. If you want to be part of our history and ensure that the tradition continues, please consider becoming a Beaufort Water Festival volunteer. As a group, we have made countless memories, and enduring friendships and have cherished working alongside so many dedicated community members. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

On behalf of the entire crew, thank you for supporting the Beaufort Water Festival. We look forward to having many more great times, and hope your family and friends have “A Summer to Remember.”
