Preparations being made for 2020 Outer Banks Taste of The Beach

Published 3:16 pm Wednesday, January 29, 2020

It’s time for a bit of food, drink, and fun! The 2020 Outer Banks Taste of the Beach is back for another round of fantastic foodie events from Thursday, March 26 through Sunday, March 29.

This annual food and beverage festival will feature an array of fine restaurants located from Corolla to Manteo and everyone from casual chefs to gastronomic gourmands can indulge in a fancy wine dinner one night and enjoy the eclectic selections of a tapas crawl the next.

Three group cornerstone events at The Soundside event site in Nags Head will also be part of the four-day festivities, starting with a family-friendly Flashback Friday movie night under the stars. On Saturday, your taste buds get to be the judge during the competitive BBQ and Wings Showdown, which will also feature a classic car show, live music and a variety of food trucks. To cap off the weekend, some of the beach’s best chefs will star in the 2020 Grand Tasting and Bartenders’ Bubbly Bash, with some of the proceeds benefiting the Outer Banks Beach Food Pantry.
