Bites and Blues

10th Annual Bites and Blues
April 1, 2023

2023 1st Place Winner, Blue Ocean Market

Celebrate Spring with our signature event, Bites and Blues, on the Morehead City Waterfront on April 1st from 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm. Tempt your palate with tasty bites from locally owned restaurants as live music fills the waterfront from various establishments.

The afternoon begins at 1:00 pm at Southern Salt for the unveiling of the 2023 Commemorative Poster. Beginning at 2:00 pm, use your ticket as your guide as you walk the Morehead City Waterfront, stopping at each participating restaurant or host business to taste a delicious “bite” or "sip." Businesses offering free entertainment during the event will be highlighted on your ticket.

Attendees get to vote on their favorite “Bite of the Nite!” no later than 5:30 pm and at 6:00 pm you are invited to meet us back at Southern Salt to toast the 2023 Bites and Blues Winner. The winning restaurant will be awarded the prestigious "Bite of the Nite" award and a booth at the 2023 North Carolina Seafood Festival.

Tickets will go on sale online only, Friday, March 3rd at 12:00 pm

This sell-out event has become a Carteret County favorite among locals and visitors alike so don’t miss out on the chance to join us for this year’s Bites and Blues on the beautiful Morehead City Waterfront!
