Celebrating its fourth year in 2024, the Hatteras Village Waterfowl Festival (HVWF) is returning to Hatteras Island on Friday and Saturday, February 23-24.
The festival will kick off Friday evening with the delicious Fin, Feather, and Bourbon event. Small plates featuring seafood and waterfowl will be accompanied by select bourbons, wines, and beer. (The full menu is listed below.)
Tickets for the Fin, Feather, and Bourbon event are limited and can be purchased online at https://hatterasonmymind.com/HVCA/WaterfowlFestival/.
All events on Saturday, February 24, are free and open to the public, and include a wide variety of displays, workshops, vendors, and activities for attendees of all ages.
Hawk Manor Falconry will make an exciting return to the main stage, and attendees will have an interactive experience with birds of prey, learn the history of falconry, and also enjoy flight demonstrations and a simulated hunt. These amazing birds and handlers wowed the crowd in the past, and the 2024 encore performance is not to be missed.
