Edenton, though small in size, is mighty when it comes to local culture and heritage. The annual Edenton Music and Water Festival is a community-wide celebration of the area’s natural environment as well as the people and stories that make this town beloved by so many. Whether you were born standing on sea legs or prefer nice solid ground, this festival’s activities appeal to all. With events set in different Edenton locations, the festival encourages people to take to the water with boats and other craft, move their feet to the live bands’ music, parade up and down Broad Street and more. Check out the exhibits of foods, animals and tractors and peruse the vendors’ displays of local artwork, craftsmanship, food and other wonders. This annual event is usually held during the first weekend in June.
