The Outer Banks is a culinary destination with a variety of flavor choices. The Outer Banks Restaurant Association hosts Taste of the Beach, an annual food and wine festival. The OBRA hosts culinary experiences that showcase the cooking and hospitality skills of the local Outer Banks community. As part of Joe Lamb Jr & Associates, we want to ensure you have the best beach experience possible and a full belly to enjoy. Spend one fun-filled weekend discovering the treasures of the Outer Banks!
Taste of the Beach consists of nearly 15 quaint venues that host over 40 events over three days. More than 20 iconic restaurants are participating throughout the OBX in this event. A broad platter of prepared delicacies will be served during this food-lover festival, including wine tastings, a 5k, food education, special multi-course menus, brewery tours, culinary tours, tapas crawls, and chef cook-offs.
