30th Annual Engelhard Seafood Festival
"30 years of celebrating GREAT North Carolina Seafood. Come out and enjoy the food and the activities, all while support our local businesses, our non-profits, and all our awesome vendors. It's going to be a great day. Rides for the kids and all day entertainment for the adults."
Hyde County Chamber of Commerce honors Jason's Restaurant of Ocracoke as Business of the Month for the month of July. Owned by Jason Wells, the restaurant has been serving the island for 16 years and offers a variety of delicious foods, making it a great choice for anyone. As Ocracoke Guide puts it, “If you can’t find something you like, you’re not trying…”!
