Goose Creek Island Homecoming Show
Community Center
Schoolhouse Rd.
Hobucken, NC

October 19 - 22, 2017 Always held the third weekend in October, this show features the talents of several generations of Goose Creek Islanders and is held at the Hobucken Community Center at 7:30 PM, Thursday - Saturday, celebrating tradition, music, dance, comedy skits and the unique flavor of their island home. Written, produced, directed and performed by local residents, the show has expanded from one to three performances over the years. Natives who have left to find work elsewhere come back in droves to enjoy the local talent, vowing to retire 'at home' on the island when they can. Some mainlanders are allowed to join the entertainers on stage and audiences from three counties fill the Community Center on Schoolhouse Road in Hobucken for three nights. Tickets are available at the door when people line up at 6 PM for hot dogs, chili boats, drinks, popcorn and home made goodies, to renew acquaintances, make new friends, and to get good seats.

Sunday worship at 10:30 AM offers local preachers on a rotating basis and is followed by a covered dish luncheon to culminate the homecoming celebration.
