Labor Day weekend on Bald Head Island is truly a celebration, and the annual Labor Day Cookout offers a lot more besides a chance to feast on burgers and beachy fare. With corresponding activities and events held all along the island, and plenty of unique attractions to discover along the way, the annual celebration is a prime opportunity to uncover everything this popular North Carolina vacation destination has to offer.

The star of the weekend is arguably the Labor Day Cookout itself, which features plenty of classic beach fare that visitors of all ages will adore. In addition to the cookout, however, new vacationers will soon discover that there are a lot of activities that coincide with the event, and which are sure to work up an appetite. The weekend features end of season sales at area shops, Boot Camps and various running events, and activities and camps that are just for kids, such as the Conversancy's Mini Meteorologist, Shoals Club Pool Party, and a Fun Run. With a ton of other programs both on the sand and on the water, like SUP Cup Excursions, Turtle Trots, sailing, and birding or beachcombing tours, the Labor Day Cookout is a lot more than meets the eye, and is a great introduction to beautiful Bald Head Island.
