2016 Boardwalk Blast Summer Events

Summer is fast approaching, which means soon the Carolina Beach Boardwalk will be abuzz with fun, family-friendly events, live music, and more!

Take note of the upcoming Boardwalk Blast events this summer and mark your calendars! All events are free and open to the public!


Island Greenway Will Make It Easier to Navigate Pleasure Island By Bike and On Foot

Walk and Bike by the Sea!

All across America, folks are recognizing the importance of having protected, ample space in which to exercise and connect with nature. In fact, many communities are even rated on their "walkability" and level of bike safety.

The Island Greenway Project is aimed at developing 1.2 miles of 10-foot wide pavement that will serve as a multi-use path. The plan is for that section to begin at Mike Chappell Park and continue south to Alabama Ave.


Coming Soon, In June! 31st Annual Carolina Beach Music Festival!

Some pretty epic things happened in 1985, but around these parts, 1985 marks the year that the Carolina Beach Music Festival was created. Who could have predicted then what an incredible event it would become?

Just as the Cape Fear Coast has experienced tremendous growth, so has our homegrown beach music festival! Of course, we are not surprised by its increasing popularity or by the fact that it is the longest running music festival of its kind!


Golf Car Raffle!

The Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce and the Pleasure Island Foundation for a Sustainable Community is holding a raffle fundraiser in which the grand prize up for grabs is a fully "tricked out" 2012 Club Car "Precedent" street-ready, four-seat golf car!

Raffle tickets are on sale now through October 9, 2016. The cost of tickets are $20.00 each or you can get 3 tickets for $50.00. Only 1,000 tickets will be sold so hurry and get yours today!

The winner of the raffle will be announced on October 9, 2016 at the Pleasure Island Seafood Blues & Jazz Festival. You do not have to be present to win.

Here are the details of the fundraiser, along with the specs for the grand prize golf car!
