Events in Wrightsville Beach, NC

If the pristine water and miles of sand weren't enough to draw you to Wrightsville Beach and Figure Eight Island, NC, a stellar line up of annual events are sure to bring you to the shore. From surf contests to the spectacular NC Holiday Flotilla, annual events on Wrightsville Beach celebrate the sun, surf, and sand of the coastal landscape. Throughout the year you'll find fishing tournaments, a farmers' market, races, concerts, and outdoor events the whole family can enjoy. Many of these family-friendly events take place at the Wrightsville Beach Park on Causeway Drive, a busy hub of activity in the area. Many other events — like surf competitions — take place on the beach. Still other events like fishing tournaments and Safari Hunt explore the landscape of the water itself. For other events in the area, visit the events listing on our Wilmington, Carolina Beach, and Kure Beach sites.
