Mustang Music Festival: This event is happily anticipated by locals and visitors alike. Rock and blues (and some music in between) blast out from the double main stage on the ground of Whalehead and other locations in Corolla for this two-day event. The bands start the event in the mornings and make sure it lasts into the wee hours of the night. And while you’re listening to the music, be sure you check out the artisan market there – it’s a great place to find artwork, jewelry, clothes and other goodies. The best part about this Outer Banks event is that it benefits the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, so you’re having a fine time while helping a major cause.
