We go “all out” for holiday celebrations on Topsail Island. Find out how locals celebrate the holidays (including Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter) — and start new holiday traditions with the whole family on Topsail Island.

Holidays are a big deal on Topsail Island. Some of our busiest weekends happen over Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day, as people come from all over to spend time on the beach and enjoy our Southern hospitality. We love these times of year, as people are out playing and families are reuniting. Not to mention, our local businesses thrive during holiday weekends.

Some of the iconic Topsail Island holidays include the End of Summer Celebration over Labor Day Weekend, the Independence Day fireworks shows and the famous Holiday Flotilla. Whatever time of year you choose to visit Topsail Island — or if you’re considering buying a home here — we’re sure to be celebrating seasonal holidays as a community.
