Ocracoke Fig Festival

Visitors can enjoy a Traditional Ocracoke Square Dance on August 6, then enjoy a full day of fig-flavored-fun with a Fig Cake Bake-Off, plenty of fig cake samples, a “fig marketplace” with plenty of arts, crafts and baked goods, and lots of games and family-oriented activities for visitors of all ages. (We’d recommend this as a day trip – about 3 hours of traveling to Ocracoke, including a ferry ride!)
