Hatteras Village maintains a very active social schedule with a full calendar of events for the participation and enjoyment of both residents and visitors.

Day at the Docks ... Vendors/Exhibitors

Day at the Docks was started to celebrate the "Spirit of Hatteras" when the village recovered from Hurricane Isabel in 2003.  This September event is a confirmation of the strength of community, heritage and living traditions of the watermen. There are competitions, demonstrations, entertainment, seafood, children's activities and educational information. The concluding activity is the Blessing of the Fleet.  The communities from all over the island gather at the harbor in solemn prayer for the watermen's safety at sea and their successful catches.....Learn More

Next Day at the Docks will be September 13-14, 2024.

Offshore Open

The Hatteras Village Offshore Open is an annual event that takes place in May.  Established in 1994, this fishing event has evolved into a unique tournament that enjoys the full support of the community, local captains and fishermen. Diligent planning, community involvement and a growing list of sponsors have guided the event from 25 boats and a top prize of $3000 in 1995 to an event which has seen the entries grow to 64 boats with a total prize payout of $144,000.  All proceeds from the
tournament are given to the Hatteras Village Civic Association for charitable causes within the community....Learn More

Waterfowl Festival


Making its debut in February, 2019, the Hatteras Waterfowl Festival  serves as a great opportunity to discover just how wild the island’s wintertime environment can be.  The weekend-long event provides educational opportunities to explore and learn about the local wildlife while providing plenty of food, fun, and related activities.....Learn More

Fish Fry

Each Saturday afternoon between Memorial Day and Labor Day from 5:00 PM until there are no more fish to serve, this has been a village tradition for decades. Everyone is invited to a meal featuring the best fried trout, mackerel and blue fish that can be found on the island.  This event is sponsored by the Ladies Fire Auxillary and the proceeds go to help local organizations such as the Civic Association, local churches, and the food pantry.

July 4th Golf Cart Parade

As long as there is not enough to do enjoying water sports, the beaches, barbecuing, and all the other events associated with this national holiday, the Golf Cart Parade is a must.  Anyone can participate and with a little decorating imagination, the carts sport themes from patriotic to the ridiculous.  The parade is fun for participants and viewers alike. 

Christmas Parade

The holidays would not be complete without an old fashion Christmas parade and Hatteras Village is where you can find one.  For warm, hometown, holiday spirit,  this is an event that no one should miss.  After the parade and as twilight draws nigh, Santa is transported throughout the village on one of the local fire trucks wishing holiday cheer to all the local youngsters as well as to those who are young at heart.

If you are looking for a fun filled vacation, a place to raise your family or a place to spend your retirement years then you are at the right place.  From fishing  to surfing,  water activities are unlimited.  From the solitude of strolling miles of undeveloped beaches unlike nothing else in NC to enjoying small community life then Hatteras Village is the place of your dreams.

Hatteras Village is located in Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  On their website they describe the area as:

A place to engage your senses.  The sound of ocean waves, the starry night sky, or the calm of the salt marshes, you can experience it all. Shaped by the forces of water, wind, and storms these islands are ever changing. The plants, wildlife, and people who live here adapt continually. Whether you are walking on the beach, kayaking on the sound, or climbing the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse there is something for everyone to explore!
