Come and join us each Friday night during the summer at the Museum of Coastal Carolina for the Ocean Isle Beach summer concert series. The series begins on May 24, 2019. You’ll find this toe-tapping, hip-swaying music addictive. The concert series lasts all summer long with the final concert taking place on September 6. This year’s featured bands include everything from country to rock, and beach to jazz. All concerts are free to the public. The music kicks off each night at 6:30 p.m. and continues until 8:00 p.m. That makes them the perfect events for the whole family. Make sure to bring a chair, as there is no designated seating.
