Dare Day Festival
Join us rain or shine for Dare Day, the annual celebration of Dare County, on the first Saturday in June! Started in 1976, Dare Day is a free, family-friendly event that promises a fun day of food, crafts, music and performances, shopping, pig racing, a regatta and more!
Adults can walk along the beautiful downtown waterfront and check out the wares of more than 100 vendors offering furniture, toys, carvings, clothing, jewelry, paintings, photography and more. The aroma of delicious food fills the air with the smells from fresh local seafood, polish sausage, hamburgers and hotdogs! Plenty of cold beverages including fresh squeezed lemonade, slushes and homemade ice cream.
Parking is available along streets and town locations within walking distance of the event. A shuttle service is also provided.
We encourage new vendors to participate. On site demonstration of your artistry and talents is welcomed.
