Information on COVID-19 for Hatteras Island Daytime Events
With restrictions still in place limiting gatherings to no more than 10 people, you can imagine that a lot of the daytime (and nighttime) events on Hatteras Island have had to either cancel or adapt. But we're all about adapting around here, given our history of hurricanes and flooding events that alter day-to-day life for periods of time. Some outdoor events where it's easy to social distance, such as fishing tournaments, are still a go. Others, such as concerts or festivals, have had to take a year off. Still, you'll see from the list below that there are still daytime events to take part in. This list will change regularly as we hear from local businesses and nonprofits as they firm up their summer plans.
One of the many great aspects of this island is that Cape Hatteras events happen almost year round. Say goodbye to the days when Hatteras Island events occurred only between Memorial Day and Labor Day because now there’s always something going on to entertain athletes, artists and students of the area's history and flora and fauna. Cape Hatteras events can vary in style and type, and you’ll find a range between the Triple-S Invitational, lectures at the Graveyard of the Atlantic museum, pottery classes and glass-crafting workshops. Some of these activities happen weekly or even multiple times a week, so it’s easy to check them out once you learn how they can factor into your vacation’s schedule. Other Hatteras events occur more sporadically or maybe even once a year. Many Hatteras Islands events are great fun for the entire family. Arts and crafts are offered for children and adults alike, and while some workshops are open to all ages, others gear more toward children or adults. It’s a good idea to check a company’s website or call them to find out what works best for whom.

Or, if you have flexibility on your trip dates, you might choose one week over another in order to be here when a big annual event, such as Day at the Docks, Starry Night on Valentine's Day or the Hatteras Christmas parade, is happening.
