The Rock The Cape music and arts festival in Rodanthe is back on June 2
Rock The Cape will return to Hatteras Island on Wednesday June 2 for a full day of art and music at Kitty Hawk Kites’ Waves Village Watersports Resort in Rodanthe.
“Kitty Hawk Kites is delighted to welcome Rock the Cape to Waves Village Watersports at milepost 40,” said Kitty Hawk Kites Marketing Director Ben Saltzman. “This is such a fun, community-driven event that celebrates the creativity of Outer Banks artists, and we’re proud to be a part of it!”
The free, family-friendly event will begin with a craft market and end with a concert.
The Rock The Cape Island Art Show will begin at 12 noon on the lawn of Kitty Hawk Kites’ Rodanthe. Artists wishing to participate can register online at DareArts.org/rockthecape. The deadline for applications is Friday May 21.
“The Hatteras Island Arts and Crafts Guild is very happy to host the Rock the Cape event on Hatteras Island once again this year,” said Hatteras Island artist and vice president of Hatteras Island Arts and Crafts Guild Stephanie Kiker. “Let’s celebrate the artists of the island, be it music, painting, ceramics, photography and much more. While on the island, be sure to visit the many stunning galleries which all feature local artwork.
Live music will begin at 2 p.m. with Hatteras Island musician Rory Kelleher performing at the art exhibit.
Starting at 5 p.m., Hatteras musicians Izzy Pop, Mary Joy McDaniel and The Mumz will kick off a sunset concert on the terrace of the Good Winds restaurant. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and beach chairs to enjoy the free live music.
For its Hatteras Island debut, Stereo in Words will close the evening with original music heavily influenced by the alternative college rock of their youth.
