LETTER from the COMMODORE
Welcome to the 66th Annual Beaufort Water Festival!
My name is Shawna Doran and I have the distinct honor and privilege to serve as this year’s Commodore. Since 1956, our community has celebrated alongside family and friends, making memories at 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 on 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 Water Festival volunteer. From the first time I volunteered in 1999 I was hooked. I have made enduring friendships and have cherished working alongside so many talented and dedicated community members. Email email@example.com for more information.

We hope you enjoy the traditions that this wonderful, beautiful, and historic city by the sea has to offer at the 66th Annual Beaufort Water Festival! We are proud of our mission to promote the natural and scenic beauty of Beaufort and the surrounding areas.
On behalf of the entire Water Festival Crew, thank you for supporting the Water Festival. We look forward to seeing you. We could all use some “Fun, Sun and Vitamin Sea!”
