You don't want to miss the 2020 Ocracoke Fig Festival!
Each year this little festival gets bigger and more FUN! Make your plans now to join us! Two days of figs, fig preserves, fig cake, savory fig dishes, stories, live music, dancing, artisans, raffles, and more!
The Fig Cake Bake-Off on Saturday afternoon is the main event of the Festival. We have three categories: Traditional (using a traditional recipe), Innovative (anything goes as long as figs are involved), and Fig Kids -- bakers under 16. We will gather to watch the 3 groups of judges taste and rate their fig cake samples. After the judges confer and pick an 1st place and runner-up for their category, it's a Fig-For-All while we eat the entries!
Throughout the day we have vendors selling fig-related items, and live music. On Friday night there is a traditional Ocracoke Square Dance and a Fig Preserves Tasting Contest. On Saturday night there's a dance with the Ocracoke Rockers, where we have beer, wine and soft drinks for sale. The entire event is family-friendly, with activities especially for kids throughout the day.
