General Update: Cancelled events due to COVID-19

 

Press Release  - Emerald Isle Beach Music Festival, Day4Kids, EmeraldFest Concert Series, Summer Movie Nights- Covid-19

The Town of Emerald Isle desires to protect the safety of its citizens, visitors and staff during the continued COVID-19 pandemic.  We believe it is prudent to cancel certain town sponsored events that assemble large groups of people.

On July 14, 2020 the Town Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution to cancel the following events for 2020:

●EmeraldFest Concert Series (select Thursdays nights)

●Summer Movie Nights (select Friday nights)

●Day4Kids (September 19, 2020)

●Emerald Isle Beach Music Festival (September 26, 2020)

The health and safety of our residents, guests, employees and contractors remains the highest priority for Town of Emerald Isle.   Due to current and anticipated COVID-19 guidelines, operational recommendations cannot be met to safely hold the mass gatherings.

We sincerely apologize for the cancelations listed above and look forward to future opportunities to celebrate together in Emerald Isle.
