A CELEBRATION OF HATTERAS ISLAND

Take a drive into the heart and soul of the The Outer Banks. An iconic two-lane road stretches from one end of Hatteras Island to the other, connecting the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and seven distinct villages. One trip and you’ll realize, though, the connection isn’t asphalt. Hatteras’ kinship with nature is intertwined like a fisherman’s net; generations of livelihoods and experiences shaped by wind and water. Nothing could be finer, indeed!

DAY AT THE DOCKS

Previously a one-day annual event, Day at the Docks now extends the celebration of Hatteras Island Watermen to a four-day extravaganza, Sept. 13- Sept. 16. Celebrate our living heritage along one of North Carolina’s few remaining working waterfronts, with seafood cooking demonstrations, competitions, music, author readings, and games for all ages.
