The showpiece of the Fig Festival is the Fig Cake Bake-Off on Saturday afternoon, which is surrounded
by fun and tasty events before and after. Friday night features a traditional Ocracoke Square Dance and
the Fig Preserves Tasting Contest. Saturday begins early with vendor booths, live music all day long,
activities for children, and Museum Porch Talks about figs and fig culture on Ocracoke. A dance with the
Ocracoke Rockers & Friends on Saturday evening at the Berkley Barn provides a fun summer tradition
for all ages.
