Coming right up is the 2016 OcraFolk Festival, this weekend, June 3-5.


Visit Ocracoke Alive's Web Site for the schedule of events, up-to-date information about this year's musicians & storytellers, the Friday evening art auction, Saturday night's traditional Ocracoke square dance, special concerts, and the Admiralty Dock Party.

A host of activities, fabulous music, outstanding arts & crafts, and great island food combine to make this one of the island's most popular events. We hope to see you this weekend.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is the dramatic story of life-saver Rasmus Midgett and his rescue of the crew of the barkentine Priscilla in August, 1899. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news052116.htm.
