Celebrate Fig Traditions and History on Ocracoke Island
The Ocracoke community will celebrate the summer’s fig bounty with special guest chef and TV personality Vivian Howard. Vivian, star of the PBS shows, “A Chef's Life” and “Somewhere South,” will be the festival’s special guest at the Savory Side of Figs Dinner on Thursday evening (Aug. 5). This popular event will feature savory fig dishes from local chefs and restaurants, as well as Howard. Tickets for the dinner will be available through the OPS Museum gift shop beginning July 1st.
Mask-wearing will be required and social distancing measures will be in place.
During the week of the fig festival, island restaurants will offer fig-infused menu items, both savory and sweet. Local shops will stock this year’s selection of fig preserves, so you can take some Ocracoke sweetness home with you.
Mark your calendars for August 5-7
