Get ready for a weekend full of hotdogs, hamburgers, beer (for those of you old enough) and some fun in the sun! In less than two weeks, the official kickoff to summer here in the Outer Banks will be upon us. That’s right; we’re talking about Memorial Day Weekend!
While you’re donning your red, white and blue, come out, celebrate and spend the day at the Roanoke Island Festival Park in downtown Manteo, NC for the Shallowbag Shag Beach Music Festival. A rain or shine event, gates open at 11am. Please note that parking on the island is reserved for handicap, VIP’s, band members and vendors. However, there will be shuttles available all day, running every 15 minutes from Manteo High School parking lot.
Be sure to bring lawn chairs or a blanket for seating and your printed ticket to be scanned at the gate – unless you plan to buy at the gate. No outside food or beverages will be permitted inside of the event, but no worries – vendors will be selling beer, wine, pop, and various kinds of food and snacks all day long for your enjoyment!
Tickets are $25 presale and $30 at the door. Visit the official event website for additional information, directions, and to purchase your tickets to the party of the year! Just be sure to bring your dancing shoes and be ready for a day full of fun and music!
