Eat, Drink and Celebrate Spring at Outer Banks Taste of the Beach

By Molly Harrison | Wednesday, March 23, 2022

The Outer Banks' favorite foodie festival, Outer Banks Taste of the Beach, is on! The eating and drinking adventures begin this Friday, March 25, and run through Sunday, March 27. Taste of the Beach features dozens of events, from chef's dinners to a wing cookoff, brewery tours to food truck festivals and so much more. Tickets have been on sale for many weeks now, so many events are sold out. But there are still events with availability, and that's what I'm here to tell you about in this blog. If you didn't know about Taste of the Beach before or if you procrastinated on getting tickets, it's OK. There are still plenty of fun ways to tempt your tastebuds this weekend.

As of this writing, here are the events that are still open, but of course be sure to verify this information on the Taste of the Beach website, which makes it very easy to see the events that are still open and to make your reservations quickly. Outer Banks Restaurant Association does a fantastic job organizing Taste of the Beach as a whole.
