Arts Festival competition is held in January each year for Pamlico County students in the fields of arts and crafts where first through third place ribbons are awarded as well as a small monetary amount going to the teacher of first place winners to help further the art education program.  Youth and adults with disabilities are also offered the same awards in the Artfest, held at the same time as the Student Arts Festival.  First place monetary awards are given to the school/institution and all participants are recognized with a certificate.

In March the Woman’s Club hosts its Chowder Cook-off on the grounds of the Oriental Marina Inn.  Amateur and professional chefs cook large pots of chowder for sampling.  Tickets are $10 at the gate.  Click here for the most recent poster.

A Fall Bazaar may be offered biannually in November where members offer for sale arts and crafts they have as well as baked goods and mix or match cookies by the pound.  This proves to be an excellent Christmas shopping venue for the public and is enjoyed by all.
