Outer Banks Seafood Festival – Nags Head, NC:  The Outer Banks Seafood Festival is an event that is held to honor our fishing heritage.  For years, the Outer Banks held ‘The Wanchese Seafood Festival’ which was a celebration of the industry and the village that was built on bringing in fresh seafood to market.   In Hatteras each September, there’s ‘Day at the Docks.  on the waterfront in Hatteras village. The event celebrates the working traditions of the waterfront with seafood cooking demonstrations, fishing boat and gear displays, fishing industry skills contests and competitions, local seafood cooking competitions, music, author readings, a chowder cook-off contest, activities for children and concludes with a Blessing of the Fleet.   (For more info on this year’s event go to www.dayatthedocks.org.)

The Outer Banks Seafood Festival is the result of a renewed desire to bring that history and heritage back to life for visitors and locals alike.
