2018 Swan Days Festival

Thousands of Tundra Swans, Snow Geese, Canada Geese, and twenty-two species of ducks migrate to Lake Mattamuskeet each year between November and February to spend the winter on North Carolina's largest natural lake. The Swan Days Festival, held on the second Saturday in December, celebrates the winter migration, and especially the return of the majestic Tundra Swans. This year, the festival is on December 8, 2018, from 10:00AM to 4:00PM and will take place at Mattamuskeet School and on Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge.
