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.

Our selection of events is geared towards our visitors, but for a broader collection, take a look at the Daily Advance Community Calendar.  For business related events, please visit the Elizabeth City Area Chamber of Commerce Website.

Dates and times for these events are subject to change. Please contact the event planner; or event location to confirm info.
