Independence Day (Island Farm)

July 4 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Celebrate Independence Day, 1850’s style with Island Farm! On Thursday, July 4, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., the Farm will host visitors to celebrate the holiday. Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the Farm’s grassy lawn, and continue celebrations of the nation’s birth with musket-fire, traditional games, and a reading of the Declaration of Independence.

A living history farmstead, Island Farm is a tangible glimpse into coastal history, and the realities of life on Roanoke Island in the mid-1800’s. Admission to the site is $10, and children 3 and under are admitted for free. The site is located at 1140 N US Highway 64, north of Manteo on Roanoke Island.

Island Farm is owned and operated by Outer Banks Conservationists, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1980 to protect important natural, cultural, and historic resources along North Carolina’s Outer Banks through education and conservation.
