244th Anniversary of the battle of Moores Creek Bridge

Feb 22 2020 10:00AM - Feb 23 2020 10:00AM

Join in commemorating the 244th Anniversary of the Battle of Moores Creek Bridge. On the weekend of February 22nd and 23rd, we will be hosting a variety of Living History events. You can tour the battlefield encampments, watch historic weapons demonstrations, and roam the artisan trades area. There are interpretive demonstrations of the battle held daily— these are not reenactments, but they show the Patriot perspective of the battle unfolding. After you’re finished exploring the battlefield, be sure to stop by the Visitor Center to check out the exhibits and see the park film. Join us from 10:00am-4:00pm each day. This event is FREE!

Mardi Gras Celebration

Mardi Gras Celebration

Feb 22 2020 8:00PM - Feb 23 2020 12:00AM

To celebrate Poplar Grove’s 40th anniversary as a public historic site as well as LEAP YEAR, we are borrowing from one of our favorite coastal cities, New Orleans! In 2020, Mardi Gras is February 25, otherwise known as Fat Tuesday – the last day of the Carnival season and sucking from the marrow of life’s pleasures before Lent, or Ash Wednesday. On Saturday, February 22nd from 8-Midnight, like all of the French Quarter, we are decking the porches of Poplar Grove carnival-style. There will be signature cocktails, food trucks, a dj spinning tunes in the courtyard, a costume parade and prizes, so come dressed in your favorite outlandish golds, purples and green, feathers, boas, cuff-links and bowties. This is a 21+ event.

The Gathering of the Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail

The Gathering of the Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail

Mar 27 2020 9:00AM - Mar 29 2020 2:00PM

Join us for a weekend of camaraderie, festivities and the latest MST news in Surf City, right on the Topsail Island shore, nestled between our trail communities in Pender and Onslow Counties. When we last gathered here in March of 2019, the area looked a little rough, as recovery from Hurricanes Florence and Matthew was still underway. We’re thrilled that Surf City is back – homes and businesses restored, debris cleared with new paint gleaming. Besides the yearly Friends meeting on Saturday, the rest of the weekend will be filled with excursions that showcase the treasures along the Coastal Crescent trail.
