Diamond City Gala is a non-profit organization annually celebrating local history, art and music while raising money to support our local community. This year’s Gala aims to help rebuild Carteret County’s Community Theatre, damaged from Hurricane Florence in the Fall of 2018. Diamond City Gala is named after the historic village called Diamond City which was a fishing and whaling village on Shackleford Banks. It was called Diamond City in reference to the diamonds on the Cape Lookout Lighthouse. Across the sound is nearby Morehead City. The Diamond City Gala is held in Morehead City, and its name reflects the heritage of the region. The Diamond City Gala will be held October 19, 2019 for the first time. The event takes place in Morehead City from 12-6 pm at MLK, Jr. Park which is located at the intersection of 10th and Arendell Street (behind the historic train depot).
