The Outer Banks Food Truck Showdown is throwing down once again this Sunday at the Outer Banks Event Site in Nags Head.

Bring a huge appetite to this one because it has just gotten even bigger than it was before with 13 main course trucks on hand and three deserts.

And, of course, a day filled with music.

Things get going at 11:30 and wrap up at 4:30.

Four bands will be on hand. The kids from the Mustang Outreach Program kick things when the gates open.

At 12:30 Of Good Nature takes the stage with range of music that’s hard to classify. They’ll be followed by local band Trick Fly with Fixity 5. Their sound is sort of an eclectic blend of…well, it’s a bit of everything with great vocals and acoustic instruments.

It’s All About the Food at the Outer Banks Food Truck Showdown

But the real star of the day is the food, and there are a few food thrums we haven’t seen before— Mac ‘N Whoopie, Poblanos Tacos and More, and The Corner Venezuelan Food,

When we got to the inaugural Outer Banks Food Truck Showdown last year we walked out stuffed. We may have to fast for a day or so for this one.

The Outer Banks Food Truck Showdown is not the only big event happening this weekend. The 44th Annual Dare Days will be happening on the Manteo waterfront. Lots of live music, games for kids, homemade food contests and more. A wonderful celebration of small-town life.

One great common feature to both events, and really typical of Outer Banks events, is they are very family friendly.

Summer has come to the Outer Banks and Brindley Beach Vacations is ready to provide the best possible experience for our guests. Visit some of the best restaurants in this area!
