On the first Thursday of June, July and August, residents and visitors have the chance to enjoy a free art show at the Nags Head Event Site (where the old Windmill Point restaurant was located). Local artists and crafters at this Outer Banks annual event set up exhibits and displays of products and work that you could spend an afternoon browsing through. Featured work includes paintings, sketches, photography, pottery, woodworking, blown glass, soaps, jewelry and more. The artists are friendly and eager to describe their trade to you. This is a lovely chance to support local artists at a low-key and entertaining event. The Windmill Point Art Fair also helps benefit the Outer Banks Children at Play Museum.
