Thanks for an incredible holiday season! Look for more markets in 2024!
We're currently organizing yoga at the park for summer 2024. We'll post information here as it becomes available. Thanks to all who came out this past summer and fall.
Thanks to our market vendors, and to our market visitors, for their support over the summer of 2023. We are planning holiday markets now, so be sure to monitor this page or the Dowdy Park Facebook page for the latest updates.
Because parking is limited at the site, our summer markets must take place when the parking lot at Nags Head Elementary is free, which is from mid June through mid August.
Follow Dowdy Park's Facebook page for the link and more information.

Parking at Dowdy Park is limited. Please park at Nags Head Elementary School next door (when school is not in session) or across South Croatan Highway at the YMCA.
If you park along the streets:
- DO NOT park in someone's driveway.
- Obey the traffic cones and NO PARKING signs.
- You must have all of your vehicle's wheels off the road. If there is no room for all 4 wheels to be off the road, look for parking elsewhere.
We need to ensure that cars and emergency vehicles can get through.
We had a great summer concert series. Many thanks to our generous sponsors and those who came out to hear the fantastic bands.
Look for more concerts next summer!
We're working on adding movies. Keep an eye out here for more information or sign up to receive an email or text when we add an event at Dowdy Park. Scroll down to the News Flash category and click next to Dowdy Park Events. Or, you can follow our Facebook page.
