Visit the NC Seafood Festival this year and we know you won’t go away hungry. From traditional “Down East” Clam Chowder, Shrimp Burgers and Charcoal Mullet to Sea Urchin on a stick, Calamari and Marinated Eel – all are available for you to sample during the Festival. Friday night starts with a Habitat for Humanity Fish Fry. Saturday and Sunday feature nearly 100 individual booths sponsored by restaurants, civic organizations, school groups and churches all featuring their own interpretation of the best North Carolina has to offer from the bounty of the sea. Then this is the place for you! If not, then there will be numerous other treats to try, some common and some not so common for the more adventurous.
In any event, no one should go away hungry! One of the festival’s main goals is to promote the seafood industry on the Carolina coast. By giving you the opportunity to try so many wonderful treats we hope you will be tempted to try other seafood creations when you return home.
While at the Festival you will be amazed at the number of vendors and artisans offering their handmade goods for sale. Many of the vendors are local civic organizations, school groups and church members who use the Festival as their main source of raising funds for their annual projects. Photography, painting, glass blowing and molding, wood carvings, wall hangings and pottery are just a few of the arts and crafts you can expect to find along the streets in Morehead City during the Festival. Even though the Festival attracts well over 150,000 visitors, parking is so abundant and near, you can carry your prize purchase to the car within minutes and return so as not to miss any of the events. Be sure to stop by the Festival Booth for apparel, posters and other items unique to each year’s event.
