This Friday, May 31 the Dare County Arts Council will be hosting the inaugural Rock the Cape festival from 2-10pm at Koru Village’s Beach Klub in Avon. Rock The Cape will be a kick-off-to-summer festival to benefit the Dare County Arts Council program outreach on Cape Hatteras and the Community Music School. The fundraiser will celebrate life on the water’s edge and will feature 10 local art and craft vendors, great live music, catering by the Frisco Sandwich Company and Haoles Sushi and Sake Bar, drinks, a kids’ zone, and more. The live music will feature Southern Culture on the Skids as the headline, Formula, Waterhigh, Ruth Wyand Trio, and the Dare County Arts Council’s Community Music School!

Tickets for the event are $12 in advance and $18 at the door. Tickets are available at Koru Village in Avon, Dare County Arts Council’s Gallery in Manteo, and Cloud Nine in Nags Head. You can also purchase tickets online at brownpapertickets.com.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Dare County Arts Council programs including the outreach on Cape Hatteras and the Community Music School.

The Dare County Arts Council is hoping to continue the Rock the Cape festival each year, making it an annual event. Come out to the Beach Klub in Avon, and enjoy an evening of great fun and help to make the first year a huge success!
