Mark the calendar: Whalehead Wednesdays begins soon

Corolla Wild Horse Fund joins in the fun at Whalehead Wednesdays by bringing one of the mustangs in its herd to the event. Currituck County’s Department of Trade & Tourism provides an afternoon of live music, fun, food, wines from regional vineyards, craft beers from regional breweries, and the natural beauty of the northern reaches of the Outer Banks.

One of the more enduring weekly events available to visitors and residents during the summer months on the Outer Banks is the Whalehead Wednesday’s Wine & Beer tastings.

The family-friendly event — which is from 3 to 7 p.m. every Wednesday from May 29 to Sept. 11 — takes place at the historic Whalehead Club, 1100 Club Road, overlooking Currituck Sound in Corolla.

Admission is $20 per person (ages 21 and older) for those who intend to sample wine and/or beer, and includes a souvenir wine glass and samples of featured wines (bring a photo ID if interested in purchasing a ticket). There is no cost for non-drinking adults and children to enter and enjoy the live music and other vendors on site.

Water and charcuterie tickets can be purchased for $1. Water costs two tickets; a large charcuterie box including quality salami, cheese, grapes and crackers is only four tickets; and a kid's box costs two tickets. The kid's boxes include a juice box, cheese stick, and fruit. 

Those who purchase a ticket to tour the Whalehead Club will receive a discounted admission price of $3, excluding specialty tours. General admission prices are $5-$7 per person, and free for ages 5 and younger. The Legends & Lore's Ghost Tours begin at 7 p.m. every Wednesday and costs $15. Advance registration is highly recommended. Tours are limited.
