LuLuPalooza at LuLu's Gulf Shores

Music is on the menu for LuLuPalooza, a music festival that takes place at LuLu's Restaurant in Gulf Shores. Typically held the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, "Crazy Sista" Lucy Buffett's event brings music to the boat stage all day and night. There is no cost to attend the festival.

Kick Off Summer At LuLuPalooza At LuLu’s Gulf Shores

Jimmy Lumpkin & The Revival perform at LuLuPalooza 2017.

Kick off your fun summer season on Memorial Day weekend with a day of free music and fun at LuLuPalooza!

Rocking the outdoor boat stage at LuLu's restaurant all day and night on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, the event is free and open to the public.

Headliners for the 2017 musical festival included New Orleans-based funksters Flow Tribe, Adam Holt, Jimmy Lumpkin & The Revival, and Yellowhammer.

LuLu’s is located at the foot of the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge on the north side of Ala. Hwy. 59. It is adjacent to Homeport Marina and is hard to miss from the Intracoastal Canal bridge, thanks to its bright blue roof.

LuLu’s is a place for escapism and crazy fun for locals and visitors. Owned and operated by Jimmy Buffett’s “Crazy Sista” Lucy Buffett, the restaurant offers a fun environment for visitors to enjoy great food, tons of fun, shopping, live music and more—all wrapped up in a waterfront ambiance.

There’s usually a wait on busy summer evenings, so be sure to let the kids burn off some steam by climbing the Mountain of Youth, playing beach volleyball, or getting their faces painted or their hair wrapped.

Lucy is the author of cookbooks showcasing recipes from the Gulf Coast called “Gumbo Love.” Called a love letter to the Gulf Coast’s vibrant food culture, ‘Gumbo Love’ is Lucy’s second book and is a guide to regional fare that is interwoven with her philosophy of relaxation, freedom, gratitude, enjoyment and whimsy.

Bring the family and stay in a four-bedroom condo in Gulf Shores for Memorial Day weekend.

In addition to LuLuPalooza, there are many other fun activities to enjoy that and every weekend, such as shopping at The Wharf or Tanger Outlets, visiting the new amusement park and roller coaster at OWA, or enjoying a sports event in Gulf Shores.
