Carteret County Arts & Crafts Coalition Summer Show in Beaufort This July 4th Weekend


Beaufort NCIn addition to the 4th of July fireworks, cruises and other festivities on the Crystal Coast this holiday weekend, plan for a day at the Beaufort Historic Site for the Carteret County Arts & Crafts Coalition (CCAC) Summer Show. The CCAC holds its events annually over three weekends each year: Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and a special three-week show between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

This popular local event is a juried show and sale by the area's coastal craftsmen and artisans featuring their unique works. The artists are on-site and happy to answer any questions you may have or to give you more insight into their methods. The CCAC Summer Show runs Friday, July 4 from 10a.m.-5p.m; Saturday, July 5 from 10a.m.-5p.m.; and Sunday, July 6 from noon-5p.m. Keep up with the latest updates by visiting the Carteret County Arts & Crafts Coaltion's Facebook page.

Make a day of it in beautiful and historic Beaufort-by-the-Sea. Stroll the waterfront, enjoy lunch at a downtown Beaufort eatery or waterfront restaurant, then stop by the Beaufort Historic Site to peruse the arts and crafts. Take something home for yourself and shop for handcrafted gifts for your friends and loved ones, too.

Pair it with the other July 4th events on the Crystal Coast, and you have the makings of a great holiday weekend. We hope you already have your Emerald Isle beach vacation rental reserved and that you're ready to spend some of the 4th just relaxing and enjoying our gorgeous beaches. If you can't make it for the holiday weekend, why not make Emerald Isle your summer vacation destination? It's never too early or too late to plan for an Emerald Isle beach vacation. There is nothing like some sand between your toes, the lapping of cool Atlantic waters against your skin, and the sea-salt air to renew and rejuvenate your spirit. We highly recommend it.
