Jennette's Pier Special Events

special Events on pier and beach










Jennette's Pier hosts a wide variety of special events both on the pier and on the beaches all year round. These include several fishing tournaments (pictured), running races, amateur and pro surfing contests. While pier staff organizes and conducts the events on the pier, the beach events are typically put on by outside organizations such as OBX Running, Outer Banks Sporting Events, Wave Riding Vehicles (WRV) and the Eastern Surfing Association (ESA) to name a few. Once the dates are known for 2017 events, we'll post them on this page.
