SwanFest & EmeraldFest 2014




It’s a Sunday night relaxing thing to do, down by the waterfront in beautiful Swansboro…not a bad way to start your week.  


The Seaside Arts Council is gearing up for another great season of outdoor music in downtown Swansboro.  The 2014 schedule is already set.  Musicians of many genres will take the Pugliese Pavilion stage this summer, starting Memorial Day Sunday and running for seventeen consecutive Sundays through September 14.  SwanFest has grown into a great music venue, with local favorites to Nashville recording artists.

Bring your lawn chair to the Pavilion at Olde Town Square, Swansboro NC. (No pets or alcohol please.)

In case of bad weather, SwanFest concerts move to the Assembly Room of Swansboro Town Hall – 502 W Church Street (just up the street from the pavilion.)
