NC Azalea Festival

For over 60 years Southeastern NC has been throwing a festive event like no other- be sure to be a part of this event the first full week of April each year. The Festival is a celebration of Wilmington's exceptional artwork, gardens, rich history and culture during its five days of entertainment that includes a parade, street fair, circus, concerts and all things SOUTHERN!!

Blue Crab Festival

This fun weekend festival is held in mid-May in Little River, SC-just a 15 minute drive from the island.

Sunset at Sunset Festival

Sunset Beach's favorite event is held annually the first Saturday in October and is the perfect one-day event during the perfect time of year. The community block party has entertainment all day, quality crafts and vendors, and some of the best food you'll find anywhere.

North Carolina Oyster Festival

The famous oyster festival is held on Ocean Isle Beach during the 3rd weekend of October. People come from hundreds of miles to eat oysters, listen to great music, browse hundreds of crafts and vendor tents and enjoy the rest of the festivities. This event has been honored as North Carolina's best Festival in the past, and is a party that you must make plans to attend during mid-October.
