WELCOME. . .
The International Association of Beauforts was established in 1995 when Beaufort-en-Vallee, France hosted the first reunion of Beauforts. The Beaufort, North Carolina organization seeks to promote international cooperation, understanding and development through a variety of dynamic exchanges with cities and towns with whom Beaufort maintains active sister city partnerships. By interpreting our way of life to people of other cultures, we gain a better understanding of our own community. This site provides information on our local organization as well as overviews of each of our sister-city Beauforts.
Beaufort Sister Cities was one of the sponsors for the first En Plein Air Art Festival & Competition, managed by the Downtown Beaufort Development Association and the Arts Council of Carteret County. The first event took place May 2, 2015 in downtown Beaufort and historic district streets. Here are the winners.
