The federation’s northeast office recently moved to its new location in the Marine Industrial Park in Wanchese, where the event will take place on Friday, Sept. 30 from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
“This fun, family friendly event is a great opportunity to cultivate community and come together around our passion for the coast,” said Erin Fleckenstein, regional manager.
“We’re happy to be hosting the fifth annual Fish Fry and Shrimp Boil from our new office in the Industrial Park this year. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the coast, than to come together as a community and enjoy the bounty that our waters offer.”
The menu features local seafood and shrimp in addition to desserts and sides. There will also be live music and family activities. This year the event also features a raffle for a stand-up paddleboard.
City Beverage Company of Elizabeth City and Sweetwater Brewing Company donated the stand-up paddleboard to the federation. The winning ticket will be drawn at the event, and participants do not need to be present to win. The winner will be notified by Oct. 5 and will have 30 days to pick up the paddleboard from one of the federation’s offices. Raffle tickets can be purchased at nccoast.org/paddleboard. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20.
Tickets for the event are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Children 12 and can attend for free, but a donation of $10 is suggested. One ticket includes one plate of food and a nonalcoholic beverage; other drinks will be available for purchase.
Tickets are nonrefundable and can be purchased online at nccoast.org/fishfry. After Aug. 15, they can also be purchased in person at Café Lachine in Nags Head and Front Porch Café in Manteo.
Proceeds from the event benefit the federation’s programming in the northeast coastal region.
