We are currently planning the
37th Annual NC Seafood Festival
on the Morehead City Waterfront!
October 6-8, 2023
We are the most attended festival in the state and rank nationally in the top 200 “Must See” festivals by the International Festivals & Events Association. Over the festival weekend, we entertain 200,000 visitors, host over 200 artisan and commercial vendors, seafood vendors highlighting fresh, local caught North Carolina Seafood and other NC produced food and beverage products, children’s games and rides, cooking demonstrations and tastings, and two musical stages. Although the application period for non-seafood vendors is currently closed, please apply to the waiting list below. There are always some approved vendors whose attendance plans change prior to booth assignment.
When that happens, we call a vendor on our waiting list in the order in which they signed up and offer them an application and chance to apply. If that first vendor cannot take advantage of the opening, we move down the wait list in order until the space is claimed.
So be sure to sign up early so you have the best chance of filling one of the inevitable openings!
If you accept the offer to apply for a vacated space, there is a $50.00 non-refundable application fee plus a small processing fee and local/state required tax. There is no cost to sign on to the wait list.Please email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest in the
37th Annual North Carolina Seafood Festival!
