Spring is almost here and that means the Outer Banks Taste of the Beach cannot be far behind.
There are a lot of places that do a “Taste of…” but no one does it as well as the Outer Banks Taste of the Beach.
Think of it as a combination amazing culinary adventure and a tour of the of everything from Corolla to Manteo…with a couple of side trips to the mainland.
The dates have been moved back just a bit this year and the event will be the last weekend in March, beginning or Thursday. The dates are March 28-31.
Hopefully that will get us slightly warmer weather. In the past the ToB has been in the middle of March and weatherize we’ve run the gamut from balmy springtime to nor’easter.
Regardless of the weather, the show must go on.
Since most of the events are indoors, what’s happening outside shouldn’t matter too much There are, however, two outdoor events that will certainly benefit from better weather…although experience has taught us that regardless of the weather the BBQ & Wings Showdown is a lot of fun.
Look for the Showdown at the Nags Head Soundside Event Site from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
One other big event to put on the radar is the Chefs Grand Tasting & Bartenders Bubbly Bash. That also will be held under the tent at the Event Site.
Although it’s outside, the Event Site tents will allow far more room for the what is a grand finale of the weekend. The Grand Tasting has been growing is size and squeezing everyone into one room has become difficult for the restaurants and at time uncomfortable for the guests.
The Chef’s Grand Tasting will be Sunday from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
As the big weekend gets closer, we’ll call out a couple of events that look especially different and interesting.
Be sure to book your home for this very special week with Joe Lamb, Jr. & Associates.
