The afternoon continues at The Common at Cape Fear Station with a tasting event featuring wine, craft beer and specialty cocktails along with a Southern Smoke BBQ dinner by pit master Matt Register. The evening concludes with live music under the stars by “new grass” band The Midatlantic. On Sunday, the weekend wraps up with a wine tasting and seated dinner at the Bald Head Island Club featuring fine wines by B Cellars of Napa Valley, all rated 90+ by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Now in its third year, the Roast and Toast on the Coast event is one of our most anticipated weekends on Bald Head Island,” said Jeff Leonard, Executive Director for Bald Head Island Limited Real Estate Sales. “Vacationers are making their plans months in advance to come to the event. If you’ve never been to Bald Head Island, it’s the perfect introduction to our carefree, relaxed way of life.”
