The arts are alive in Belhaven. You can see for yourself!
Downtown is home to the Belhaven Arts Council, an active group of local atists whose mission is to “advance Belhaven through the arts and creativity”. Art can also be found at Coastal Cottage Life on Haslin Street, Pungo River Boutique on Allen Street, at belle arts gallery on Pamlico Street, and Sanger Art Studio and Gallery on East Water Street. Art classes are held at two local shops in town.
Arts of the Pamlico, one of the oldest arts councils in the state, helps bring the “Pickin on the Pungo” bluegrass festival to Belhaven every January. The NC Estuarium in nearby Washington presents exciting exhibits and programs throughout the year for art-lovers of every kind.
It’s not just about the visual arts in Belhaven! Everyone knows the Inner Banks loves music. Join a group of local musicans every Tuesday night at Belhaven Main Street Landing for some bluegrass, gospel and country music! Come with your instrument to play or just come to listen and enjoy.
