Enjoy a classy summer art festival in Corolla with the annual Under the Oaks Art Festival. More than 100 artists present their work and crafts at this two-day outdoor festival. You can participate in the art auction and kids can partake in children’s activities while basking in the shade of the live oaks at the Whalehead estate. Vendors from local restaurants provide food that you can munch on while viewing all the artwork. It’s a little taste of Outer Banks culture tucked away in Corolla that you won’t want to miss. This event is usually held in late June.
