Experience the Original Currituck Celebration

Spawned by legend, built for the celebration of life and nature.  In the mid-1600’s a whisky filled ship from Kilmarnock Scotland sank off the shores of lower Currituck.  Area residents reveled in the bounty that came ashore with a celebration that set the stage for the spirit that carries on to this day. The Legend Lives On!
