very May, nearly 25,000 people come together on Elizabeth Citys waterfront to celebrate one of the states top crops, the potato. The annual North Carolina Potato Festival is a fun-filled day for families, from the free French fries and Little Miss Tater Tot pageant to corn hole tournaments, kiddie games and the street dance that winds up the event late in the evening.

Weve got local vendors and vendors from out of state with crafts and food, music and lots of things to do all day, says Rebecca Cross, executive director of Elizabeth City Downtown Inc., which hosts the festival. It draws all ages and kinds of folks and is really a lot of fun.

potato Festival

The NC Potato Festival, which is the largest festival in the area, takes place in downtown Elizabeth City each May. The family-friendly event includes food, games, live entertainment and more. The festival kicks off with a party on Friday and the main event follows the next day.

We have one of the prettiest downtowns anywhere, especially being right on the water. Our family really enjoys the waterfront, so Mariners Wharf is where we like to take the kids and just go when we want to relax. Another thing we all love to do as a family is see performances by The Center Players, which is the Arts of the Albemarle youth theater group. We go to all of their shows.

City indeed earns its Harbor of Hospitality nickname. Mariners Wharf park on Water Street, with its sweeping harbor view, provides ample green space for a variety of these activities. Tuesdays in August and September belong to Music on the Green, a free series featuring different local artists and musical genres. SiT-iN mOviES WiTh a harBOr viEW Folks also bring their lawn chairs and picnic blankets to the waterfront for a drive-in movie experience, sans cars and speakers. Each Tuesday night in June and July the Mariners Wharf Film Festival, sponsored by Elizabeth City Downtown, offers classic films, from musicals and westerns to romantic comedies, shown for free on a large screen. As many as 300 film fans turn out, enjoying dinner downtown first or bringing a picnic supper to the park. The

2012 season included such enduring classics as Casablanca, Singin in the Rain and Roman Holiday. People have loved these films, says Simone Cooper, who organizes the festival. For many this is the first time theyve seen these films on a big screen. Its something fun that families can do for free. And thats important in these economic times. CElEBraTiNg frEEDOm, arT aND mOrE On June 15, Mariners Wharf hosts one of the citys most joyous events, Juneteenth, a celebration of the end of slavery. A day honoring African-American culture is filled with music, food, family activities, entertainment and a reading of The Emancipation Proclamation. See for more information on this special event. Big events, though, arent the only way Elizabeth City residents enjoy their waterfront. Each month

Boaters who take the Intracoastal Waterway along the Pasquotank River soon learn why Elizabeth City has earned its reputation as The Harbor of Hospitality. Whenever five boats or more happen to come into the harbor at the same time, they are feted with a wine and cheese party sponsored by the Rose Buddies, a group dedicated to extending a gracious Southern welcome to Elizabeth Citys visitors. In addition, each woman on board gets a rosebud as an extra treat. Rose Buddies can be identified by their shirts and Mariners Wharf caps.

hen Arts of the Albemarle renovated and opened a historic downtown building for gallery and performance space in 2009, it became an arts magnet, attracting more artists and art-related businesses to the downtown area.

This downtown arts anchor is located just one block from the waterfront. The 15,000-square-foot visual and performing arts center brings many art patrons into downtown for events, programs, activities, camps, workshops and performances. On the first Friday of every month, AoA opens a new exhibit featuring the work of several artists, says Rhonda Twiddy, AoAs interim executive director. Locals make First Friday ArtWalk part of their regular social calendar and often include dining in one of the many local restaurants. With more traffic created by AoA, a number of new businesses have opened that are arts-based. aTTraCTiNg arTS-BaSED BuSiNESSES For instance, Two and a Half Women is a co-op for artists from across the area including teens under the age of 16 with no commission taken from the young artists.

A Splash of Color
Elizabeth Citys arts community and district led to its selection as the host city for the Watercolor Society of North Carolinas annual exhibition and workshop. While the event was held in the Raleigh area in the past, organizers wanted to move the location to other parts of the state. When the groups president visited Elizabeth City, she totally agreed that the (Arts of the Albemarle) center was great, the town was unique and there were great expectations for community support, says Mary Crutchfield, a local artist and workshop teacher and a former member of the WSNC board, who lobbied for Elizabeth City to serve as a host city. Carolyn Peel, wife of Mayor Joe Peel, served as chair of a fundraising project to create public art to welcome the Watercolor Society. Using grants from the Elizabeth City Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Watercolor Society, the project involved art teachers and more than 200 students painting banners to hang from the streetlights along Main Street. We wanted to make the area shine with public art created by our own students, Crutchfield says. The project developed with fabulous partnerships between the teachers, the students and the community, who donated money to sponsor these banners. We even closed Main Street one afternoon to have a street party with all teachers, kids, parents and friends, which was a joy. Hosting the WSNC exhibition and workshop is indeed a win-win partnership with our Arts of the Albemarle, the school system, the students and the residents who are very supportive and anxious to see the great art that comes from artists all over the state, Crutchfield says.

two and a Half Women

works created by local artists are displayed at Two and a half women in elizabeth Citys downtown area.

At Kellys Color Studio, Kelly Cameron makes, teaches and sells art. And nearby at Serenity Studio Arts, local artists share working space, sell their works and teach classes. Owners of these businesses say that the communitys investment in the arts drew them downtown initially, and their presence is helping to draw additional artists, as well as artbased activities and businesses. We have been wonderfully welcomed in Elizabeth City, says Tina Clancy, co-owner of Two and a Half Women. We offer space to artists that are not displayed in any other venue, so we can work in conjunction with other studios offering art for sale. We try to carry arts that cover all tastes, likes and prices.

As more art businesses have arrived in the downtown area, the district has transformed to accommodate them and in turn, they have helped strengthen existing businesses. Restaurants in the downtown area have shifted their hours and operations to accommodate arts patrons, particularly during First Fridays and with scheduled performances at The Center, Twiddy says. Local businesses utilize the works of artists represented in the gallery and add to their collections regularly. Several studios and galleries now offer retail arts supplies for sale. Being located in an arts district allows these new businesses to work together to help satisfy customers.

Im able to send folks in any direction from here to enjoy the Museum of the Albemarle, Arts of the Albemarle, or any other local shopping venue or gallery, Cameron says. lONgTimE COmmiTmENT This regional arts focus has long been in the making, Cameron adds. She grew up taking art classes from local artists, and has happily watched as the local newspaper increased coverage of the arts and as the city undertook its first public art project. The streets were lined with beautiful wooden painted sailboats for a month, and then were auctioned off, she says. There is a lot going on and I am positively thrilled to see it.

Local arts advocates are keeping the momentum going. Continued collaborative planning and marketing are important, Twiddy says. Businesses benefit from foot traffic in the downtown and artsbased activities help to increase that traffic. Twiddy and other arts advocates are focused on showing the value of the arts as an economic driver, strengthening partnerships with the local school systems, and providing arts education programming for people across Pasquotank, Gates, Chowan and Currituck counties. by Nancy Mann-Jackson by staff photographer Michael Conti

s the Harbor of Hospitality, it makes sense that Elizabeth City hosts the largest Coast Guard base in the United States, featuring five commands: Base Elizabeth City, Aviation Technical Training Center, Air Station Elizabeth City, Station Elizabeth City, and the Aviation Logistics Center.

A jet on display near the gate of United States Coast Guard Base Elizabeth City, which was founded in 1939

ECONOmiC imPaCT With more than 1,300 active duty and civilian personnel, the base is the citys largest employer, with an estimated $117 million economic impact that reverberates throughout the area as a support industry magnet. Contractors serving the base employ some 700 personnel and contribute $30 million to the bases overall economic impact. WOrk aND rETirE iN ElizaBETh CiTy And when local active duty personnel retire, they tend to stick around. Elizabeth City has the highest per capita population of retired Coast Guard employees in the country. Part of the attraction for Guard retirees is the ability to continue working after retirement within the contract industries that support the base. Phil Wentworth, a retired chief warrant officer, says contract work is well suited for a retired person working to supplement their income. The electronics skills he developed in the service made him an easy contractor hire. Camden resident John Tanis, a retired aviation maintenance mechanic, says, For me and my wife, it was important to us not to uproot our daughter. We have

good schools and lots of good friends in Camden. Elizabeth Citys small town atmosphere also helps keep retirees around. Its an urban town with a rural feel, says retired Captain Jim Thomas. Elizabeth City is small enough that if you want to make an impact, if you want to play a role in the community, you can. You can participate. Youre not just a number like you would be in a big city. Thomas, who is employed by a local defense contractor, and his wife, a teacher, feel a personal connection with the citys leadership and choose to live in the heart of town on Main Street. COaST guarD WEEk Elizabeth City formally shows its appreciation for service men and women and their families during Coast Guard Week, held annually the first week of August. Organized through a partnership

between the Elizabeth City Area Chamber of Commerce and the Guard, activities vary from year to year but always include free tickets to local sports attractions and merchant discounts for Guard personnel and retirees. Mainstays are the USO concert and Coast Guard Day at the base, a birthday party for the Guard celebrating its founding in 1939. One popular Coast Guard Week activity is the free day of golf for active duty personnel at The Pines at Elizabeth City golf course. The course also offers public as well as private membership golf. You cant find a better deal in the area, Thomas says about the course. Its beautiful, challenging, and fairly easy to get a tee time. There is even a group of retirees called the Hoobie Goobies that tee off every day at 12:30. Its a fun group to play with. by Cyndie Todd by staff photographers Michael Conti and Jeffrey S. Otto

Championing the Region

new Chamber presidenT Takes lead in CommuniTy advoCaCy
The past couple of years have been significant for the Elizabeth City Area Chamber of Commerce, which celebrated its centennial anniversary in 2011 and installed a new president in 2012. New president Kelly Thorsby is serving the chambers membership by increasing networking and referrals while also taking a lead in advocating the community as a great place to live and work. The chamber still serves as the voice of business in our area, and the majority of our businesses are small companies with fewer than 10 employees, Thorsby says. Chamber members of this size especially enjoy referrals from other members and the numerous networking opportunities the chamber provides. The chamber draws its membership from Elizabeth City, Pasquotank County and the Camden County region. The Elizabeth City area is a great place to work, and the numerous businesses that call this area home can attest to that, Thorsby says. hEalTh, EDuCaTiON aND ENTErTaiNmENT She adds there are several reasons why Elizabeth City remains a fine place to live and raise a family. Our health-care providers are first class for residents of all ages and abilities, and our population area can also enjoy the benefits of having Elizabeth City State University, College of The Albemarle, and MidAtlantic Christian University right in our backyard, she says. Our rural neighborhoods and charming towns

are surrounded by countryside and farmland, yet were close enough to the Outer Banks and Virginia to allow for a diverse spectrum of interests and activities. In addition, Thorsby says that Elizabeth City and the surrounding area also have great places to play. Whether enjoying one of our historical sites, museums, fine golf courses, ball fields, local theater groups, restaurants, retail shops, art centers, or any other number of varied entertainment outlets, we have something for everyone, by Kevin Litwin she says.
