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

Now entering its 21st year, let the music performed by nationally recognized Blues and 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".

Join Us in Kure Beach for Music, Food, Crafts, and More

A weekend of non-stop musical talent, the Pleasure Island Seafood Blues and Jazz Festival features live jazz and blues performances on two stages. 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.

The Pleasure Island Seafood Blues and Jazz Festival is scheduled each year in the second weekend in October.
