Northeast North Carolina's largest festival will return on May 17 bigger and better than ever. Bring the whole family and come and stay all three days! Food, arts and crafts, contests, live entertainment plus a Midway full of games and large amusement rides can all be found in Downtown Elizabeth City. Come and join the kick-off party on Friday night. You'll want to return on Saturday and Sunday so you can enjoy the street fair lining downtown streets, the National Potato Peeling Contest, auto and motorcycle show and other events. The Fun Run starts at 8am, but don't leave too early or you might miss the USCG Search and Rescue demonstration over the Pasquotank River Saturday afternoon.
