June 2019 Events and Things To Do on the NC Coast
June is a big month here on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. Why? Because it's the month of the annual Big Rock Blue Marlin tournament, for one thing. Then there's the absolutely gorgeous beach weather in Emerald Isle. And of course school lets out this month, so all of the summer fun with your family and friends is just beginning. It's an exciting time! There are so many June events that we don't have the time or space to list them all, but go ahead and follow the calendar links to see more of what's happening this month.
Just one quick question: Have you booked your Emerald Isle, NC rental yet? Seas the day!

The 2019 Big Rock Tournament is in its 61st year on the waterfront in Morehead City. Among the largest and oldest sport fishing tournaments in the country, the Big Rock calls avid deep-sea fishermen to North Carolina’s Crystal Coast for a full week of angling and community celebration. Over the course of the last half-century, many boats have docked here, many tourists have gathered here, and many Morehead City natives have come and gone. The mission has always stayed the same: to represent the sport fishing community as superbly as only Morehead City can! Come and check the weigh-in scales when you can.
