Mustang Rock & Roast

This event is happily anticipated by locals and visitors alike. Rock, funk and blues (and some music in between) blast out from the double main stage at Mike Dianna's Grill Room 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. Food has been added as a major draw for 2018 – an oyster roast on Saturday and a BBQ Cook Off on Sunday. 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. Beer, wine and food are sold on site. The event is held in mid-October. For more information, get in touch with the event via their website.
