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.
