November 3-11 will be one of the busiest weeks in the shoulder season as people from all over the country travel to the beach for the 5th Annual Outer Banks Veterans Week and the 12th Annual Outer Banks Marathon.
On Friday, November 10 Outer Banks Sporting Events and Dare County Arts Council will host a free concert at Pamlico Jacks in Nags Head for guests attending these events, their friends and families, and the Outer Banks community.
“Outer Banks Sporting Events is elated to partner with Dare County Arts Council to create lasting change in our global community through veterans programs and healthy lifestyles” said Outer Banks Sporting Events Executive Director Ray Robinson.
North Carolina eclectic, acoustic bluegrass band Sassagrass will headline the concert, which will be held at Pamlico Jacks at 9pm.
“We are thrilled to be performing at the kick-off event for the Outer Banks Marathon,” said Sassagrass upright bass player Greg Howell. “We look forward to sharing our style of high-energy, NC bluegrass with the dedicated athletes from across the country and the world. Knowing the funds will go to support our Veterans makes it that much sweeter.”
The concert will support local Veteran art programs and organizations with guests being able to make donations to the local Outer Banks VFW Post 10950 at the event.
Sassagrass live at Pamlico Jacks is one of the marquee events during Outer Banks Veterans Week.
