FREE Sunset Beach, NC SUMMER EVENTS!
Fun Summer Events at Sunset Beach can be found & best of all, these are even FREE!
Every Wednesday night through September 4th, the Sunset Beach Summer Concert Series enthusiastically provides FREE LIVE MUSIC for visitors & locals alike. The lineup is quite impressive and the variety is much enjoyed. The music starts at 6:30 pm and entertains nicely until 8:30 pm. Be sure to bring a lawn chair, blanket or towel and find a comfy spot to enjoy the show. If you like to dance, you don't even need dancing shoes, just kick your flip-flops off and feel the music. There's plenty of local Sunset Beach Restaurants ready to serve you before or after the music plays, but why not order food to go and have a true picnic with live music! We highly recommend this Fun, Free, Family event all summer at the Gazebo at the Queen Anne Street Town homes near Ingram Planetarium, which also a great family "must see" at Sunset Beach.
The Old Bridge Preservation Society beautifully maintains the floating center section of the Sunset Beach Bridge that now resides on the mainland near Island Breeze and How Sweet It Is Ice Cream Shop. This dedicated group has scheduled FREE Summer Events including "The Young Explorers Program" for children on Wednesday mornings from 10:45 am - 12 pm. Bring the kids and have a blast! Families are welcome to participate on Thursday night events 5:30 pm- 7 pm at the Old Bridge location. See the lineup of these fun events attached or visit the Old Bridge Preservation Website or look for signs near The Sunset Inn on the island of Sunset Beach.
Yet another FREE event we highly recommend is the guided tour of Bird Island, home of the Kindred Spirit Mailbox. Local volunteers spend countless hours being guardians over the beloved Kindred Spirit Mailbox and are giving guided tours on Wednesday mornings at 9 am for eager oceanfront walkers. Meet at the 40th St walkway oceanfront and you'll surely enjoy the newly displayed kiosk(s), the Kindred Spirit Mailbox, the informative nature discussion and the exercise. Make sure to write your thoughts in the notebook before you leave!
If you can pull yourself away from Sunset Beach long enough, we've posted a list of Events close-by, all of which are located in Brunswick County, NC. And of course, they are still FREE! See the uploaded photo, but these events range from Summer Concerts at Ocean Isle Beach on Friday nights at 6:30 pm to Outdoor Movies at dusk in Calabash and Shallotte on Thursday nights. Go enjoy!
We never forget the BEST FREE entertainment of all, the glorious, unspoiled sand of Sunset Beach, NC itself. Some visitors are so mesmerized, they just can't leave this amazing island. It's ok- you need to soak it in, live it up and truly cherish the 2 1/2 mile island I am so fortunate to call home. When you are ready to call Sunset Beach home, let Dave Nelson help you find the right property or Dave Nelson Construction can build the island home of your dreams!
