Elizabeth City is Blooming with Springtime Events

Posted on 02/28/2019 by Visit Elizabeth City

Springtime Events

Time to shake off the cabin fever! The Elizabeth City area offers plenty of activities and events to entertain locals and visitors. Browse our shops and galleries to see artwork from our talented artists, listen to great music, try some fabulous locally owned restaurants and explore our beautiful nature trails and waterways. Get ready to enjoy Springtime in Elizabeth City!



Art in Elizabeth City

Have you heard about First Friday ArtWalk?  The first Friday of every month our Downtown shops and galleries have a featured artist, musician or author showcasing their talents.   Be sure to hit all the spots so you get to see everything.  If you're still hungry after nibbling on the light food and drinks provided at the participating shops, think about listening to music and grabbing a bite to eat at our fabulous downtown restaurants.

For fans of live performance, we have three great opportunities to catch a show, each by a different theater group!



Nick Simmons-PBNJ

Downtown Elizabeth City is rockin' mid-week and on the weekends.  Check out the weekly and monthly music series as well as individual live performances, a little bit of something for everyone.  Get out there and tap your toes or move to the groove.



NC Charcuterie Board

Looking for a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day?  We have the scoop on where to grab a bite, drink and enjoy the party!  After the St. Paddy's Day hoopla dies down, stick around town and sample the food at our foodie-fun events, including special "Craft Beer Month" events.



Paddle for the Border

Visit our playground!  Explore our nature trails and waterways, kayaks are a favorite around here.  There are plenty of fish in our vast waterways, so bring your fishing gear.  Our parks in the downtown are home to many of our festivals and events.  You can even rent a pontoon boat to cruise the Pasquotank River!



Museum of the Albemarle

Our region is rich in history that you can experience through our self-guided Historic Walking Tours, Elizabeth City Aviation Trail , Civil War TrailUnderground Railroad Markers and our magnificent Museum of the Albemarle. The museum covers the history of the 13 counties of the Albemarle Region.  To see more historic options, click here.
