Memorial Day Discovery Weekend

May 26 - 29, 2017

Celebrate the best of boating on the coast of North Carolina. Our May Discovery Weekend will be held over Memorial Day Weekend. Sample the boating lifestyle with a raft-up rendezvous, clam pots, guitar picking by the pool and North Carolina beach music at The Pavilion.


Boat Dock

For our real estate guests, we’ll kick off the long weekend on Friday Evening with a Sunset Wine and Cheese Cruise aboard Miss Grace, our restored 1948 Brady Lewis. Following the cruise, dinner will be at the Harbor Club, with outstanding Sea-to-Shore specials like fresh ceviche, clam pots and local seafood.

You can enjoy a continental breakfast and coffee before the casual information session held on Boathouse Row to learn more about the neighborhoods in River Dunes. Your sales agent will schedule your private community tour and boat ride for Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

We’ll kick off the summer season with one of our favorite activities, a Raft-Up.  River Dunes owners and club members will be “rafting up” their boats in nearby Broad Creek.  There will be great food, cold beverages, and lots of fun on the water.  You don’t need a boat to join in the fun – we’ll have a “ferry” running back and forth to the dock all afternoon. On land, the pool grill will be serving up sunshine and poolside specials.

Saturday evening, there will be a Cabana Casual dinner with fresh mahi, steaks and chicken on the grill. Served poolside with live music and an open mic session.

You won’t want to miss a live performance by The Entertainers, one of North Carolina’s best beach music bands down at the Pavilion. Club members and real estate guests will enjoy a festive atmosphere on the Harbor with cold drinks, a seafood taco bar, ribs, grilled corn and great dancing music.

For reservations and Information please call 252-249-0253 or email

A more detailed Memorial Day Weekend Agenda will be coming out soon for our property owners and members.

Dragon Boat Races in Grace Harbor

August 11 - 12, 2017

Once again, River Dunes Grace Harbor will serve as the location for the 2017 Dragon Boat Races.  This colorful event features teams of racers from organizations and communities all over the Southeast.  Dragon Boats are the world’s largest flat water racing canoes, propelled by a crew of 20 rowers, plus a drummer and a steersperson.  Teamwork is everything in Dragon Boat racing, and synchronicity outweighs strength.  In addition to the dragon boat racing, other activities will include great food, music, kids activities, a parade of teams and much, much more for friends and family.

Last year, the team from River Dunes won the Team Spirit Award.  This year, they are going for the gold!
