First seafood fest to celebrate Outer Banks heritage

By on October 10, 2012

For years, locals and visitors have asked why the Outer Banks doesn’t host a seafood festival.

After beaches and natural beauty, both natives and out-of-towners alike list seafood as among the primary reasons they love this area.

Thanks to the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, the Town of Nags Head, a committee of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers, and an array of sponsors and local restaurants, the first Outer Banks Seafood Festival will become a reality on Saturday Oct. 20.

The Voice sat down with Festival president Neils Moore, Lee Nettles, Managing Director of the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, and committee member Susie Walters, a Nags Head commissioner to explain why locals and residents of Hampton Roads and eastern North Carolina should plan a visit to this inaugural event.

The outdoor event will take place in Nags Head at the former site of the Windmill Point restaurant.

General admission is free and includes live bands, cooking exhibitions and other free events.
