Spring Festival


Saturday, April 27th 

11:00 AM-3:00 PM

Ocean Front Park/Atlantic Avenue ~ Come on down to the Ocean Front Park in Kure Beach on Saturday, April 27th for this year's Kure Community Fest. The fun kicks off at 11 AM when ReSoul Band takes the stage. No Sleeves Magic will have you in stitches with their comedy magic theater show from 12:30-1:30 PM. Then, ReSoul Band takes the stage again to close out the day.

As you stroll Atlantic Avenue you'll have the opportunity to warm up your throwing arm at the dunk tank to send a Kure Beach Firefighter into the bilge, pose for a photo with a costumed character, get up close to some reptiles from the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, play a round of putt putt golf, shop hand made goods from Kure Beach crafters, and much more.
When you work up an appetite, visit one of our delicious restaurants or food vendors on site. Participating food trucks include Poor Piggy's, Well-Fed Ed, Dawn Patrol Coffee, and Happy Face Funnel Cake & Lemonade.
Events of this scale would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. The Town would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to the following sponsors: Duke Energy, Ned M Barnes Attorney At Law, and Renewal by Andersen. Be sure to show them some love.
The Town has waived paid parking enforcement in all Town-owned spaces for the day. We look forward to seeing you!

If you are a local organization, non-profit, or Kure Beach based art and craft vendor interested in participating - please reach out to the Recreation Department for application information. The Town is no longer accepting applications for the 2024 event.
