Going strong for more than a decade, this waterfront festival features a range of vendors, exhibitors, and other enticements to attract water fans from all over the region and beyond, and to provide an exceptional time for mariners of all tastes and ages.

The Crystal Coast Boat Show takes place on the Morehead City waterfront, which is a hotbed of activity for water lovers all year long. During the two day show, visitors can peruse a number of vendors who offer the most modern vessels and accompanying products, as well as a range of exhibitors which showcase both new and historic vessels that frequent the Crystal Coast waters. Both in-water and on-land boat displays will be readily available throughout the waterfront region, and a full schedule of events that includes activities for kids ensures that visitors of all ages can be entertained as they stroll alongside the downtown docks. Fun for all attendees, the Crystal Coast Boat Show provides an inside look into the waterfront lifestyle that the Crystal Coast is renowned for.
