Each year on the first weekend in December, the Core Sound Decoy Guild hosts its annual Core Sound Decoy Festival on Harkers Island.
This unique celebration boasts local waterfowl art, music, seafood, museum exhibits and more. It also includes educational displays, competitions, arts and crafts, community boatbuilding and a fellowship service on Sunday morning.
Sunday is Youth Day and children under the age of 17 get free admission to the festival, in addition to special door prizes, kids decoy painting, youth decoy competitions, archery experience and more. It’s the perfect way to experience the holiday season “Down East.”
This event is fun and family-friendly, so make your way out to the Core Sound Decoy Festival this December!
