Oak Island is Home to the Best Events of the Summer
Every day is getting nicer and nicer. The days are getting warmer and longer. It can only mean one thing… summer is almost upon us. As Oak Island and Southport get ready for another wonderful summer season, it is time for you, too, to start planning all the events and things you might want to do during your Oak Island Beach vacation. This week we showcase all the best events of summer 2019. Of course, if you haven’t made your vacation plans yet, make sure to give us a call so we can help you have the ultimate Oak Island Beach vacation.
Southport Waterfront Market
Port City Salsa Splash
Port City Salsa Splash
The 8th Annual Port City Salsa Splash in
beautiful Wilmington & Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina takes place May
30 to June 2, 2019. We invite you to our piece of the North Carolina coast to
put your toes in the sand by day and then put your dancing shoes on by night!
The highlight of this weekend event is the opportunity to dance aboard the USS
North Carolina Battleship.
Howl at the Moon- Bald Head Island
Join a Bald Head Island tradition and the largest beach party each month
when the full moon rises out of the Atlantic Ocean. The “Howl” party (as the locals call it) happens on East Beach Access 39 when the Moon rises, and
the entire group breaks into a collective “howl!” around a blazing bonfire.
Attendees bring food and drink to share, and the Maritime Market brings huge
pots of soup and some appetizers as well. The event draws hundreds each summer
and is free and open to all. For more information check them out at Howl at the Moon!
Oak Island Beach Days
Oaks Island Farmer’s Market and Artisans
The Oak Island Farmers and Artisans' Market is held on Mondays, during the season, from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on the soccer fields behind Town Hall (No Market on July 1st for Beach Day Festival). Vendors offer local fresh produce, homemade jams, cakes, and a variety of homemade goods including jewelry, furniture, rugs, potholders, and many more items. There is plenty of parking in the cabana parking lot, directly across the street from the market. Come on out and shop!
