Holiday celebrations on Bald Head Island are legendary, with the July Fourth Golf Cart Parade leading the list.
North Carolina Treasures Weekend, hosted in June by the Old Baldy Foundation, and National Lighthouse Day Weekend in August, are can’t-miss events. Memorial Day through Labor Day, you’ll want to check out the Sunset Celebration held every Monday night in the harbor area. Live music, roasted marshmallows, and plenty of surprises are always part of the fun.
While summer is the most popular time to visit, savvy insiders know that Bald Head Island is at its best in the spring and fall when the weather is picture-perfect. Roast & Toast on the Coast, a Southern Living Inspired Event, brings together the best in fine wine, craft beer, Southern food and live music in early November.
Don’t miss this Southern Living Inspired Event weekend featuring a celebration of local and regional food and drink, a concert on The Common, an oyster roast and more, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Old Baldy Foundation.
