Countdown to Festival








Kiwanis Peninsula Seafood Festival

The Festival is Saturday, September 28, 2024 from 2:00pm-5:30pm

A fun filled event with all All-U-Can-Eat seafood, BBQ, adult beverages, live music by SLAPNATION BAND, raffles, silent auction, door prizes & much, much more! $55.00 per person. $65.00 after September 15th. This event happens “rain” or “shine.”

The money raised from the Kiwanis 13th Peninsula Seafood Festival supports services for children in the communities served by the Kiwanis Clubs of Division 13. To support the VA Peninsula Foodbank, we’re asking guests to bring canned goods & non-perishable items. Listed below are just a few of the service activities of some of the Division 13 Clubs.

Different Kiwanis Clubs, Same Mission

The Kiwanis Club of Old Point Comfort in conjunction with their K-Kids of Armstrong Elementary School hosts a Christmas Party for the Riverside Rehabilitation Center residents. The residents receive gifts of socks, lotion, tissues, and hand sanitizers. From the many smiles witnessed, the interaction was as enjoyable for the gift givers as it was for the residents.

The Kiwanis Club of Mercury 64 has proudly served the Hampton community for 57 years. For the past 56 years, they have hosted an annual breakfast for all of Hampton’s new teachers and provided each new teacher with a gift. Annually over $7,500 is put back into the community through support of 12 local charities. In addition, their Jules Frank Scholarship grants $5,000 to a Peninsula Key Club member who has excelled in community service. The Club also sponsors the Hampton Key Club and Bethel High Key Club.

The Kiwanis Club of Kiln Creek is the newest club in Division 13. They have already held a Pickle ball tournament, supported Christmas Gifts for Kids and established a K Kids Club at Kiln Creek Elementary.

Members of the Kiwanis Club of Smithfield work with Social Services to identify families and provide toys at Christmastime. After receiving a “wish list” from parents and money solicited from community residents, club members and friends shop for gifts at a local store. Afterward, parents pick up the gifts, along with agespecific, educational books at a community center. The Club members’ efforts remain invisible as kids later receive Santa’s presents under the tree.

The Kiwanis Club of Greater Hilton is an active club that enjoys volunteering with the Mayor’s Book Club, The Virginia Peninsula Foodbank, Boys and Girls Clubs, Soundscapes, the Newport News Police Department, the Newport News Police Foundation and more. Kids need Kiwanis, and Kiwanis needs you.

Although a little less than three years in existence, the Kiwanis Club of Carrollton has already made a donation to the Carrollton Fire Department, donated sleeping bags and pillows to a church assisting young children and awarded a $1,000 to a nominated Teenager of the Year.

The Kiwanis Club of City Center is a 3,2,1 club; three hours of service, two hours of meeting and one hour of socializing each month. We contribute to several community organizations including, but not limited to, the Boys & Girls Club, Alcove Health, YMCA Bright Beginnings and Meals On Wheels, just to name a few. We also support the Division in all of their efforts. Meeting Times: The club meets at 12noon on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at Primis Bank and at 6:00pm on the 4th Wednesday of each month at the Cove Restaurant in City Center.
