2023 Taste of the Coast Celebration

August 5 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Join the North Carolina Coastal Federation for the Taste of the Coast Celebration, a fun summer evening celebrating North Carolina’s beautiful and bountiful coast! 

This festive celebration will include food and wine pairings, fresh N.C. oysters, raw and steamed, live music, and a new raffle for a coastal weekend experience. 

Back again this year is the outstanding silent auction featuring the best of the coast, from weekend trips, boat tours, artwork, and more, as well as live music, local seafood, and great company. Our auction will open on June 30 and new items will be added weekly!

This casual celebration will take place on Saturday, August 5, on the banks of Bogue Sound at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City. If you’d also like to attend the Pelican Awards Ceremony at 5 pm at Carteret Community College, a separate event from the Celebration, please click here.

Register by 5 pm on June 30 and enjoy 10% off your ticket price, using discount code EARLY.

Details on the Silent Auction

Our popular silent auction will be entirely paperless again this year! In addition to being better for the environment, this also allows for faster checkout at the end of the night. You’ll be able to place bids easily from your phone at the event, from bidding stations with the help of volunteers, or even at home if you cannot attend. You’ll need to set up your bidding profile with a credit card in advance and can start bidding once the auction opens on June 30th.

Thank You Sponsors
