2017 IWCA Young Guns & Canvas Decoy Championship - December 2-3

The 2017 IWCA Young Guns Championship and the IWCA Canvas Decoy Championship will be hosted by the Core Sound Decoy Festival on December 2nd and 3rd, Harkers Island, NC.

The Core Sound Decoy Festival has been a coastal tradition since 1988. Held the first full weekend in December on Harkers Island, this two-day festival includes antique decoy exhibits, retriever demonstrations, a head whittling contest, and decoy competitions with categories for every kind of carver.

There are fun activities for children and educational exhibits, as well as live and silent auctions. Harkers Island Elementary School staff and volunteers dish out scrumptious food, and vendors spread their wares for shoppers who flock to the Festival. This event benefits the Core Sound Decoy Carver's Guild and Harkers Island Elementary School and is the area's largest off-season event. Visit for more information or find the Core Sound Decoy Carvers Guild on Facebook!

The show accepts mail-ins and also offers decorative divisions. Hope to see you there!
