Enjoy Some Food and Support the Park

In 2019, we held our inaugural Feast of the East fundraising dinner featuring a night of live music, delicious food, and beer & wine at one of the most distinctive venues in all of North Carolina, the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park! The response was so positive that we decided to make it our annual signature fundraising event.

This year, we will again feature fresh oysters and other Eastern North Carolina favorite foods (including options for vegetarians), delicious cocktails, and wonderful music.

Join us in celebrating and supporting the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park!

Join us for a night where culinary excellence, enchanting music, and community heritage blend into a symphony of the senses. Experience the best of Eastern North Carolina while contributing to the preservation of our state’s folk art wonders.

Feast of the East is a night of culinary excellence. This year, our menu features oysters from Washington, crab, BBQ sliders, mini mac and cheese, honey-roasted rainbow carrots, and much more. Check out our full menu!”
