Let me tell you about Downtown Elizabeth City!! Located on the narrows of the Pasquotank River, our waterfront is absolutely beautiful! Our Main Street leads directly to our waterfront. You cannot beat the experience of watching the sunrise over the river while the sailboats are resting in their slips or departing on their journeys. We have six downtown parks situated right on the waterfront for visitors to enjoy, whether it be appreciating the view of the water, relaxing on a park bench reading a book, fishing, or throwing a Frisbee with the kids. Elizabeth City is truly a Harbor of Hospitality. Friendliness and hospitality is a way of life here. Downtown Elizabeth City is going through a period of revitalization and economic development, with multiple projects in the works from breweries to a boutique hotel project. We have more restaurants and retail options than ever. Our downtown is full of experiences for you - art classes, art shows, theater, music, outdoor movies, social experiences in our many restaurants and pubs, and, of course, fabulous shopping experiences! You almost can't count the number of events in our downtown to enjoy - First Friday Art Walk; Mariners' Wharf Film Festival; Music on the Green; Ghost Walk; Italian Dinner Fundraiser; The Taste of the Albemarle; Third Thursday Jazz; Wailing' in Pailin' Music Series; River City Rhythm & Brews; Bocce, Beer & Bites; Science Café; Holiday Illumination; Fourth of July Celebration; Empty Bowls; Kidz Flix; Christmas Parade; Splash; Juneteenth; weekly car shows; and so many more! The North Carolina Potato festival is held each May - a three day festival that celebrates our agricultural heritage and draws over 30,000 people into our downtown for entertainment, rides, contests, potato peeling, cornhole tournament, car shows, and free French fries. We love our downtown! Please vote for us!
