Festivals & Events

Pride, tradition, folklore, family, stories, music, cuisine, livelihood…when we talk about celebrating the coast, we’re really talking about celebrating an entire way of life…we’re talking about the people of the North Cape Coastal Drive. And of course we’re talking about where you fit into the celebration equation.
