Ocean Isle Beach Area Festivals
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. The event has been honored in the past as North Carolina's best Festival. This is a party that you must make plans to attend if you're in town during mid-October.
For over 60 years Southeastern NC has been throwing a festive event like no other. The Festival is a celebration of Wilmington's exceptional artwork, gardens, rich history and culture during its five days of entertainment that includesa parade, street fair, circus, concerts and all things SOUTHERN!!
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. Come visit the Sunset Properties booth for give-aways!
