Heritage Day

June 2, 2018

Take a trip back in time to celebrate the historical roots of Pamlico County during Heritage Day at the Pamlico County History Center. Life here once centered around farming, homesteading, fishing and farming.  It’s not a far stretch for a region that is now renowned for the lush landscape, waterways, world-class boating and fishing.

Enjoy demonstrations in the Heritage Village of the early days; including blacksmithing, corn shelling, tobacco tying, other historical activities and games. 

The one-room schoolhouse will be open for class, with a turn-of-a-century teacher and educational activities for children. In the barber shop, there’s face painting and a clown show. Horse & pony rides, games, sack races and a fossil dig will be lots of fun for all.

There will be a tractor and antique car show, live music, square dancing, local artisans and crafts. The outstanding History Museum with over 30 exhibits will be open all day. The Family History Room will be staffed with volunteers to help acquaint patrons with genealogical research methods. This year’s Tractor Raffle is a reconditioned 1959 Farmall Cub.

Pamlico County Heritage Center: 10642 NC Highway 55, Grantsboro, N.C. 28529

HOPE Regala

June 8 - 10, 2018

Hope Clinic is holding its 4th Hope Regala here at River Dunes on June 8th -10th, 2018. 

Regala is a relatively new colloquialism for an event that was once a regatta, but was found to be more social and less competitive. It retains a love of the water and harborside socializing while raising funds for a great cause, minus the racing. 

This is Hope Clinic’s largest fundraiser of the year and the gala truly makes it an event to remember. There’s a BBQ and live music on Friday evening. Saturday’s Harborside Gala includes dinner catered by The Flame of New Bern, raffle, live music, dancing, and outstanding auction items for the silent and live auction. Boats of all kinds are invited to participate in the Regala. 

Tickets and Sponsorships are available. Get Tickets & learn more here: https://www.hopeclinic.net/events.html

This non-profit fundraiser is for the Hope Clinic; which helps to provide free medical care and medication to low-income, uninsured adults and comprehensive outpatient addiction treatment for adults in Eastern North Carolina. Get Tickets Here: https://www.hopeclinic.net/events.html

Croakerfest in Oriental

June 29 - July 1, 2018

Croakerfest 2018 is happening on the weekend of Friday June 29 thru Sunday July 1. Headlining music act this year – The Embers, of beach music fame. Check back for more details about Oriental’s biggest summer festival. Click here for scenes from the 2017 Croaker Festival

(A scheduling note: Croakerfest typically takes place on the weekend-with-the-first-Saturday-of-July. Some years that Saturday has been as far into the month as July 7, which would have been the case again this year. The 2018 Croakerfest was scheduled far a week earlier because, Croakerfest organizer Cheryl Thompson says, it was the weekend The Embers could play. Another factor was the festival coming after the 4th of July. ) (…from TownDock.net)
