Come discover the inherently coastal flavors of the Crystal Coast by attending the always delicious Taste of Core Sound event. Held twice throughout the year to cater to summertime visitors and winter visitors, this exceptional event is always brimming with fresh flavors, local seafood, downhome hospitality, and plenty of reasons to dig in and enjoy.

The home base of the Taste of Core Sound is the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center, which is a locally beloved and acclaimed museum that’s situated in the small town of Harkers Island. Celebrating centuries of maritime heritage, the museum as well as the event pays homage to these coastal roots through a delicious taste of all the staples and more creative seafood dishes that the region is known for. A variety of dishes are served to the delight of patrons, and the event always sells out quickly, due to limited seating, so advanced reservations are strongly encouraged. Offering a complete evening that focuses on the rich local flavors of the region, and which combines local history with truly sumptuous cuisine, the Taste of Core Sound is a delicious way to for food fans to explore the Harkers Island and Down East region in depth.
