Calendar of Events

In Elizabeth City, we know how to celebrate with an event or two, for every season-from the North Carolina Potato Festival that pays tribute to the region's agricultural roots to famous local apparitions that bring our annual Historic Ghost Walk to life. We really get a kick out of these events, and we hope you will too.
