TWO Decades of Seafood, Blues, and Jazz at the Beach brought to you by the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce

 

23rd Annual Pleasure Island Seafood Blues & Jazz Festival featuring JONNY LANG

(rescheduled to April 23, 2017 due to Hurricane Matthew)

KURE BEACH — When the weather is warm, the sun is shining and the warm ocean breezes are fluttering, bring your lawn chairs and family, leave your hectic world behind and exercise your “license to chill” for two music filled days at the world famous Pleasure Island Seafood, Blues and Jazz Festival.

Now entering its 23rd year, let the music performed by nationally recognized Blues & Jazz performers, coastal cuisine, natural beauty and salt air transport you into another dimension…and into a world where your cares and stresses are left behind. It’s a world where the weather is warmer, the people are friendlier, the food is tastier, and the music is "blue-sier".

A weekend of non-stop musical talent, headlined by Jonny Lang, the Pleasure Island Seafood Blues and Jazz Festival features 14 bands on two stages over two days. The music can’t be beat and the locally prepared seafood is simply the best in the region.

This two-day festival takes place along the scenic Cape Fear River at the Fort Fisher Military Recreational Area in Kure beach. Enjoy browsing at the Arts & Wine Garden, shopping for crafts, listening to music, and fine wine tasting. Children will stay entertained for hours as they enjoy magicians, face painting, educational exhibits, inflatables and much more in the Kidz Zone.

Held at the Ft. Fisher Air Force Recreation Area in Kure Beach, this event is sure to sell out quickly, so purchase your tickets ahead of time. Please do not bring coolers or pets, but bring your chairs, towels and blankets for a weekend of music and seafood at the coast.
