The N.C. 4th of July Festival Arts and Crafts show began humbly as a street fair in an area beside what was then Leggett’s (now Ocean Outfitters) on East Moore Street. After growing and a couple of location changes, the Arts and Crafts found its home in Franklin Square Park. Franklin Square Park, located beside the Southport Baptist Church and at the corner of N. Howe and E. West Streets.

Franklin Square Park was called The Grove in the original Town of Smithville layout in 1792 (Southport was originally called Smithville). Visitors to the over 120 Arts & Crafts booths during the festival can appreciate the beautiful live oak trees that offer shade from the summer sun. Not only are there many fine hand-made items by artists and crafters, we also have unique specialty items located in the many independently owned businesses throughout the City.
