Core Sound Waterfowl Weekend

Core Sound Waterfowl Weekend

The annual three day celebration brings together dozens of artists, carvers and crafters to showcase their work during the Core Sound Waterfowl Weekend.

Waterfowl Weekend kicks off with a preview party Friday night, followed by two full days of programming that celebrates the unique heritage of the little more than a dozen small, unincorporated communities that make up Down East Carteret County.

During the weekend, in addition to a museum filled with artists and crafters, there will be a silent auction, live auction, quilt raffle and fresh seafood for sale
