NEW THIS YEAR!
POP-UP-IN-THE-PARK @ NC Seafood Festival • October 5-7, 2018

The North Carolina Seafood Festival  invites you to join the first Pop-Up-In-The Park to celebrate small local boutiques and artists within Carteret County. The Festival has found that we have many local artisans who would benefit greatly by being involved at the Seafood Festival but cannot either afford the higher rent of the standard vendor space or have the ability to produce the inventory required when located in high traffic areas.

The SasSea’s Playground has always been an area where parents can get out of the congestion of the Festival and take their children to a less crowded area for them to play and participate in activities. We will have limited space adjacent to the Train Depot and SasSea’s Island Playground for local artisans and boutique shops that offer unique items that are special to our coastal area. Call for an application: The North Carolina Vendor Committee at 252-726-6273 or email fun@ncseafoodfestival.org
