Enjoy Signature Wrightsville Beach Events Year-Round
In addition to countless island activities, Wrightsville Beach offers one-of-a-kind special events.
Catch the perfect wave at surfing competitions in Wrightsville Beach, named one of the top surfing towns in the world. Test your skills in internationally recognized stand-up paddleboarding races, reel in a trophy-sized fish at one of the annual marlin tournaments or join fellow divers on an underwater safari hunt. Take part in the Wilmington, NC Marathon as you run from Wrightsville Beach to downtown Wilmington, or the IRONMAN 70.3 North Carolina. As the sun sets, take a break from the action to view live music performances under the stars, or enjoy the parade of decorated boats and fireworks at the annual North Carolina Holiday Flotilla.
Dates and times of events are subject to change. Please visit the event's website or social media pages for up-to-date information. You can also stay up-to-date on upcoming events and island traditions by signing up for our eNews.
