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.
