Rock the Cape Festival History

Rock the Cape was started in 2012 as an initiative to celebrate the galleries, artists, and artistic community on Hatteras Island.


The annual event is held at the beginning of summer as a way to kick off the busy season on the island.


Rock the Cape brings a full slate of artistic activities from Rodanthe to Hatteras Village, including an art show, live art demonstrations, an oceanfront concert, and much more.
