Memorial Day is a federal holiday that honors and remembers those who died while serving in our country’s armed forces. While that is first and foremost the reason for this special day, it has also become a time of the year when many communities take the opportunity to gather together and have all kinds of fun.
When you have an amazing beach on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and a line up of top-notch beach bands, you have the makings of one fantastic festival. The Shallowbag Bay Shag is a Memorial Day beach festival that kicks off summer with a bang. This annual party is a true favorite that brings in people from all over and is one you will not want to miss. The White Doe Inn is just a few minutes away so our guests will have no problem getting to and from the venue.
The gates at Roanoke Island Festival Park will open at 11:30 on May 25, 2015 and the music starts hopping at 1:00 with Jim Quick & The Coastline. The afternoon will bring The Embers and The Tams and the evening will close out with a fantastic performance by Band of Oz. You can purchase a VIP ticket for $75 that includes an on-site parking pass, preferred seating, complimentary snack and drinks, and a souvenir bag, visor, and t-shirt. Regular general admission is only $25. Advance sales end May 20th, so grab your tickets before the prices jump up. It is a rain or shine event so dress appropriately and don’t forget your beach chairs and blankets.
Our gorgeous beach town of Manteo, NC is going to be hopping so book your room at the White Doe Inn Bed and Breakfast and make it a weekend to remember!
