Four day of great food and a great time at the Outer Banks Taste of the Beach.
Four day of great food and a great time at the Outer Banks Taste of the Beach.

The Outer Banks Taste of the Beach is ready to roll and just in time the local weather has decided to cooperate. 

It has been a bit cold, wet and windy for the last few days here on the Outer Banks, but Thursday through Sunday, the days of the Taste of the Beach are looking pretty good. 

We may have a few sprinkles Sunday, the day of the Grand Tasting, but there is no  major precipitation in the forecast. Daytime temperatures should be just about seasonal for early spring in North Carolina by the sea.

For any visitors who have not had a chance to get tickets to the Taste of the Beach events, well, a lot of the activities have sold out. That doesn’t mean all of them are. Click here for the event schedule.

Some Taste of the Beach Events

We got a notice today that the BBQ & Wings Showdown has sold out. That’s at the Nags Head Event Site. It’s possible that something might come open, but heading there on Saturday is taking a chance.

In the category of the super major events, the Chefs Grand Tasting & Bartenders Bubbly Bash still has tickets available. That’s on Sunday afternoon, also at the Event Site. 

That event is a blast. Quite a number of local chefs show up and outdo themselves with some truly amazing dishes. For something to drink, local bartenders rev up the creativity of their champagne mixers and fashion some very drinkable concoctions.

The Taste of the Beach is much more, though, than the tow major events. There are tapas crawls, wine and beer tastings and pairings, cooking classes…there is something for everyone. What is particularly nice is that the events stretch from Corolla to Manteo and even onto mainland Currituck. Sort of a mini Outer Banks tour. 

There is always lots to do on the Outer Banks. Spend a week or two with Brindley Beach Vacations and see for yourself.
