Last Chance for Early Bird Tix

Ocrafolk Festival Artwork Released

She’s done it again! When we wanted a special image to encapsulate all our warm wonderful feelings about Ocrafolk Festival we approached Kitty Mitchell. Kitty is the Ocracoke School Arts instructor, a past member of Molasses Creek band, and has created some of our favorite festival art over the years. Once we had Kitty’s black-and-white design, we shared it with our layout artist Justin Casey to prepare it for the poster and T-shirt. And here is the result!


Ocrafolk Festival features musicians, storytellers, artisans, and characters of Ocracoke Island, Eastern Carolina, and beyond. This magical celebration reflects the unique nature of this remote "Pearl of the Outer Banks,"(Ocracoke Island is only accesible by ferry, and features a close-knit year-round community of 1000, and the most beautiful undeveloped 13 miles of beach that you will find anywhere on the US east coast).

Featuring 3 days chocked full of performances and events, kids activities, a squaredance, workshops, food, and artisans, the Ocrafolk Festival will make you feel right at home. Best of all, your ticket fee supports kids and community programming on the island. Your only question upon departure . . . "How soon can I return?"

2019 Performers include: Molasses Creek (your hosts), Donald Davis, the Steel Wheels, Mipso, Kaira Ba, Aaron Burdette, Chatham Rabbits, Beleza, Craicdown, Noah Paley, Bill Harley, Martin Garrish, Coyote, The Wilders, Paperhand Puppets, Mahalo Jazz, Warren, Bodle & Allen, Bob & Jeanne Zentz, Green Grass Cloggers, John Golden, Rodney Kemp, Jef the Mime, Ballet Folkorico de Ocracoke, and more!

Your Ocrafolk Festival Ticket = Student Programming in Our Ocracoke Community
Your ticket to the festival doesn't just purchase your admission this year. It supports arts programming for Ocracoke children. It funds our theatres and visiting/local musicians. And it supports cultural diversity in our community. Ocracoke Alive's mission is to enrich Ocracoke Island by encouraging and sponsoring cultural activities. 

We appreciate you, our festival family, for the love and excitement you have brought to our festival over the last 19 years. Tickets to the Ocrafolk Music and Storytelling Festival can be purchased online here or at the festival box office June 7th-9th.
