Kure Beach, NC Events

Reconnect at Year-Round Events

Meet up with friends and family for a variety of events held year-round at Kure Beach. During the summer, listen to live music with Boogie in the Park free concert series and weekly turtle talks with Pleasure Island Sea Turtle Project. Check out the events calendar and take your pick of concerts, music festivals, and fishing tournaments. Witness authentic historical re-enactments at the Fort Fisher State Historic Site, take part in animal encounters at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, participate in a high-flying kite festival on the beach, join costumed characters for Storytime by the Sea or get swept up in the joy of our Island of Lights holiday celebrations. For such a small town, Kure Beach has a multitude of big-time events to enjoy.
