Schedule of Events

Bonner’s Point will resound with Music From Our Shores: Sounds of Our State featuring a full day of musical entertainment showing the evolution of musical styles from the traditional string band sounds of the Beaufort County Traditional Music Association to the popular music of today. Bath Fest is once again bringing back Dana Lewis with her versions of 1950’s popular music. Take a trip down memory lane or make new memories with the smooth sound of Dave Raducha and his 12 string as he sings classic favorites from the 1960’s to the 1980’s.  Lightnin Wells will also play acoustic blues on a variety of instruments. He has traveled and performed with the early blues veterans and documented their musical histories. Lightnin is devoted to the Carolina Piedmont blues tradition and his entertaining and energetic style is true to its original roots.   Playing a mix of island, beach and Jimmy Buffett tunes called Sailor’s Pirate Rock, Captain Dick & The Lost Seamen will end the day’s entertainment. Imagine Jimmy Buffett meeting Tom Petty and the Allman Brothers. The result is pirate rock. This popular Crystal Coast band will bring Music From Our Shores full circle and end Bath Fest’s musical story.

Art will still meet history on May 18, 2019 at Bath Fest as arts and craft vendors selling their original works line the streets of Historic Bath at Bonner’s Point. From 10:00 am to 3:00 pm join the fun at Bath Fest. Art work from the students of Bath Elementary School will be display, and local civic groups will sell food.

Please go to the Music From Our Shores Performers page to learn more about the performers. There are also links to their You Tube videos.

Bonner’s Point is located at the intersection of S. Main and Front St.   The address is 200 Front St, Bath, NC 27808.

      The Vendor Application and Festival Specifics for Vendors are attachments to the Vendor tab. Among other information the Festival Specific say the art work must be the original creation of the artist. I appreciate your interest in Bath Fest. We are looking forward to a very successful event on May 20th.
