Celebrating the Arts on Hatteras Island 

2020 Rock the Cape Festival 

The 8th Annual Rock The Cape Festival will return to Hatteras Island May 25-June 5, 2020. 

This year’s Rock The Cape will begin with the Island Art Show on Monday, May 25 and conclude with a soundfront concert at REAL Watersports on Friday, June 5.


The sunset concert at REAL Watersports is a fundraiser for Dare County Arts Council’s programming and events on Hatteras Island.
