If you are on the island be sure to come out to the school gym tonight at 6 pm for the Festival kickoff pot-luck dinner. Just bring yourself and a simple dish, drink, or dessert. The Festival will provide several tasty main courses provided by some of Ocracoke's best restaurants.
At 7:30 the live auction begins. Get a number and start bidding on dozens of outstanding items. After the auction sit back and enjoy the "blazing footwork" of the Green Grass Cloggers.
On Saturday, starting at 9 am & continuing throughout the day, enjoy music and storytelling at the Live Oak Stage, the Howard Street Stage, Deepwater Theater, the School Gym, and the Community Center. Artists and craftspersons will be displaying and selling their wares on Howard Street and the School Road.
The Festival continues Sunday at the Live Oak Stage with a Gospel Sing and more music from 9:30 am until 3:45 pm.
