A Great Fall Getaway – The Pleasure Island Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival - Start Planning Today!

Autumn is a special time of year on Pleasure Island; the weather is warm, the crowds have dwindled, and the island takes on that small-town community vibe again.  October is an ideal time for a getaway to Carolina Beach and Kure Beach, and the Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival helps make it an unforgettable experience.

Held annually the second week in October, the Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival highlights non-stop live music on two stages, lots of great seafood to savor, and a host of other activities on the scenic Cape Fear River in Kure Beach.

Kids stay entertained with magicians, face-painting and inflatables, while grown-ups can meander through the vendor market, sampling a wide variety of food, wine and beer and shopping for unique coastal craft creations.   But mostly, the festival is a great place to set up your lawn chair, sink in and enjoy top-notch musicians who come from all over the globe to perform for you.

Another great perk to a fall getaway to Pleasure Island – the rates are lower at many of our excellent hotels and rental homes and condos.  Check out Where to Stay on our website to find the perfect place to relax and unwind when the festival activities have ended for the day.

Two-day tickets are just $50 in advance.  For tickets, click here. For more information about the Pleasure Island Seafood, Blues and Jazz festival, visit the Official Facebook page or give us a call at (910) 458-8434.

July is Mermaid Month at Artful Living Group

Felice Kite’s “Mermaids” exhibit will be Artful Living Group’s featured artist for July with the opening reception on July 2nd from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.



Felice Kite is an artist and interior designer, native to the Washington DC area. Twelve years ago, she and her architect husband fell in love with Carolina Beach and purchased a cottage a few blocks from the ocean. "It's a dream come true for us. We've made so many wonderful memories with family and friends on the island. It is a very special place."

She mixes whimsical designs with inspirational sayings on wood sheets, pallets, doors and canvases to create shabby chic paintings perfect for beachy decorating. Felice upcycles mix media with bold colors for her lovable mermaids. Over the last several years, Felice has turned her love for painting into a successful cottage business. In addition to original paintings, Felice now sells posters, cards, and upcycled painted furniture. She uses her interior design skills to coordinate colors, shapes and textures for custom orders that brighten beach homes in the area.

“Mermaids” will be on exhibit in Artful Living Group’s upstairs gallery through July. Come meet Felice on July 2nd and “become a mermaid” with her.

 Artful Living Group’s objective of bringing affordable fun functional art to the public and the public to great artists is enhanced by enabling people to experience the creative process through events and studios where artists can share their inspiration and work.

Artful Living Group is located on Carolina Beach and is open everyday during the summer season.

Fort Fisher's Becky Sawyer will present "The Jewett Patent Leg," a fascinating look at a miracle of 19th century surgical technology.  With so many amputees resulting from the devastation of the Civil War, an artificial limb program was developed to assist injured war veterans who lost a leg.  A rare example of the Jewett Patent Leg is on display in the Fort Fisher museum.  Becky will walk visitors through the process of how one of the country's earliest prosthetics came to fruition.
