Peak Season (Almost) on the Outer Banks

Now that summer's just about gone, it's time to think about what there is to do on the Outer Banks in the coming months. And there is a lot--sort of a subset of the Peak Season.

Actually there's so much to do we'll just hit a couple of highlights and then put a few links out there so readers can check out out what's coming up for themselves.

September is all about activities, with the the Eastern Surf Association (ESA) Championships will kick off September 14 at Jennette's Pier in Nags Head. Running through the 21st, it's a week of some of the best surfing around.

OBX Pridefest weekend is the 13th through the 15th. Sponsored by OBX Pride it is a celebration of the joy of life and beauty of the Outer Banks as well as a gay pride festival. Evening activities are for more adult audiences, but daytime activities are geared for everyone.

October is festival month, and honestly, if you can find a way to show up and just stay here for the first two weeks you'll see some of the best live music around.

The 2nd Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival kicks things off October 3-5 at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Mateo. Rhonda Flemming and the Rage return as headliners.

The following weekend is Columbus Day weekend and two great shows that don't overlap are happening.

Friday and Saturday, it's the 3rd Annual Mustang Music Fest in Corolla. Two days of non-stop music. Followed by the 7th Annual Duck Jazz Fest on the town green in Duck on Sunday. Beautiful setting, great music--an amazing day.

Wow! Too much to even write about. Check out these links for more information. Outer Banks Visitor's Bureau or the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce.
