Rock the Cape

Dare County Arts Preps for Second Annual 

Rock the Cape Festival

On Friday, May 30 the Dare County Arts Council will host the second annual Rock the Cape festival from 4-10pm at Koru Village’s Beach Klub in Avon.

Rock the Cape is a festival to benefit the Dare County Arts Council. The fundraiser will celebrate life on the water’s edge and will feature local music, artists, a raffle, food, drinks, a kids’ zone, and live art. "As artists, we are excited to participate in the second annual Rock the Cape. With the success of last year, we anticipate great things,” said Joe and Kris Caroppoli from Caroppoli Fine Art & Photography.

North Carolina surf rock legends Southern Culture on the Skids will return for their second show on Cape Hatteras to headline Rock the Cape.

"Hey Outer Banks we (SCOTS) can't wait to get back to Koru’s Beach Klub for the Dare County Arts Council Fundraiser. It's gonna be rockin' grooves for surfing feet with the deepest reverb on the beach. All for a cause that can't be beat! Good times guaranteed,” said Rick Miller from Southern Culture on the Skids.

Tickets for the event are $12 in advance and $18 at the door. Tickets are available now online at and will be available soon at select locations.

Outer Banks band Eddy and the Rip Tides, Virginia’s Cashmere Jungle Lords, and students from the Dare County Arts Council’s Community School program will be playing throughout the day.

"Cashmere Jungle Lords is pleased to participate in Rock the Cape.  It's an excellent opportunity for us to give something back to a community that has given so much to us. We feel blessed to be able to support the Dare Country Arts Council's mission and perform again with our old friends, Southern Culture on the Skids,” said lead singer, guitarist, and chief songwriter of Cashmere Jungle Lords Dominic Carpin.

This project is sponsored by the Outer Banks Visitor’s Bureau. For more information, contact Dare County Arts Council at or (252) 473-5558.
