Who loves it: The Duck Jazz Festival has attracted nearly 5,000 locals and visitors in years past. This event grows every year due to the word of mouth of past attendees who enjoyed themselves so much they keep coming for more. Some sit on the grass relaxing with a picnic while others dance in the streets til dark! Before, during and after the Jazz Festival, there's plenty to do in and around Duck - great shopping and seafood dining, art galleries, antique shops and the spectacular views of the sound.
Get Ready: Festival organizers suggest attendees bring a picnic, beverages, chairs, or blankets (no beach umbrellas or tents are permitted). For those who like to travel light, food concessions will be provided by the Duck United Methodist Church in the picnic shelter and chairs will also be available for rent.
