Ocracoke Fig Festival

August 18 @ 3:00 pm - August 19 @ 10:00 pm

Ocracoke’s Annual Fig Festival celebrates Ocracoke’s sweetest tradition: fig preserves and fig cakes! This year’s event begins on Friday afternoon/evening on the grounds at the Ocracoke Preservations Society Museum. Learn about Ocracoke fig trees and fig recipes, and vote for your favorite in the Fig Preserves contest. Join in a Traditional Ocracoke Square Dance to the tunes of Molasses Creek! On Saturday, the Fig Festival moves to the historic Community Square. Local vendors provide fresh figs, fig preserves, local cookbooks, fig-smoked BBQ, and other fig-tastic items. Bring the kids for crafts and games, and enjoy live music throughout the day until the main event — the Fig Cake Bake-Off with free samples for everyone. The fun continues with a dance party in Community Square.
