Arts By The Sea

June 8th 2024

Join us for The Town of Swansboro's Arts by the Sea Festival in Historic Downtown Swansboro. The festival draws art lovers from around the state, eager to spy their next artistic find!

Admission is Free!

Come for the day or a Weekend Getaway and see the best artists and crafters as they line our historic streets with beautiful fine art and handmade crafts.  The juried craft show represents some of the finest crafters in the Southeast.

🎨 You'll find pottery, jewelry, paintings, stained glass, fiber, carvings, photography, sculpture and metalwork are just a few of the crafts represented at this annual event.  The festival features live, local entertainment throughout the day at the Harry C. Pugliese “Pug” Pavilion.
