You won’t want to miss one of the most highly-anticipated events along the Crystal Coast! The NC Seafood Festival is a three-day event with plenty of great food and family-friendly fun. Seafood is such an important part of coastal towns in this area, and this festival is the perfect place to learn about fishing and the key to finding fresh, local product. Plus, this event helps raise money for important local non-profits, like churches, civic groups, and educational organizations. So you’ll be able to have a great time and do it for a worthy cause!

The NC Seafood Festival: What You Need to Know
First, some history: The NC Seafood Festival was first held in 1987 and has remained a cornerstone event for the region ever since. It attracts more and more visitors to the area every year with the promise of great music, rides, vendors, and (of course) plenty of delicious seafood. Best of all, admission to the festival is totally free! The 2018 NC Seafood Festival will take place from October 5th to the 7th.
When you attend the festival, be sure to take advantage of the free parking offered at the NC State Port in Morehead City. On Saturday and Sunday of the festival, there will be a free shuttle available carrying guests to and from the grounds.
