From food and folk festivals to community-wide yard sales, these August events in North Carolina are fun for the whole family:
Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival
Aug. 9-11, 2019 Sneads Ferry
Calling all seafood lovers – this festival is shrimply the best!
What makes the annual Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival so ‘a-peeling’ is the nearly 2,000 pounds of local shrimp served throughout the weekend. Now in its 49th year, the Shrimp Festival includes a variety of family-friendly events, like a car show, parade and live music. More than 20 vendors will be on site to serve up a variety of food for guests.
Activities start off Friday, Aug. 9 and run through Sunday, Aug. 11. This year’s festival will take place at 126 Park Lane. Proceeds from the festival will be donated to various organizations throughout the Sneads Ferry community.
