OBX Arts & Craft Festival
This annual show features a superb variety of creations from 25 Outer Banks artists whose specialties include painting, pottery, jewelry, photography, glasswork, fiber and textile arts, collage, metalwork and more. Admission to the show is free on both days and there is plenty of free parking. In addition to the handcrafted art, you can gather information about two local charities – N.E.S.T. and Friends of Youth – that participate in the show. A portion of artists' entrance fees is donated to the charities.
