Events & Weddings


Located in the heart of historic Beaufort-by-the-Sea, a charming and picturesque coastal North Carolina seaport, the Beaufort Historic Site offers a spacious outdoor venue in which to hold your wedding, reception, or other memorable celebration! The Beaufort Historic Site transports guests back in time, offering not only the perfect setting for your celebration, but also tours and activities for guests of all ages. The two-acre site provides a beautiful backdrop for your celebration, whether under the shade of the magnolia trees or classic white tents, or inside the the  Carteret County Courthouse c. 1796, which has recently been restored in award-winning detail.

A popular extra for those holding their wedding or other big event on the North Carolina coast is the Beaufort Historic Site’s vintage red English double decker bus. Gather your wedding party and other guests for a special tour of the town atop our bus which can carry up to 72 people! Even if you’re not holding your wedding or big event at the Beaufort Historic Site, the red double decker bus is available for rental, and has been used for transporting guests to wedding receptions at nearby North Carolina beaches, etc.
