Ocracoke Fig Festival

August 4 - August 5

The Ocracoke Fig Festival offers something for everyone. The festival celebrates the island’s sweetest traditions, Ocracoke figs, fig preserves, fig cakes, and fig trees! This family-friendly event includes exhibits, demonstrations, fig preserve and fig cake contests, porch talks, vendors, music, and dancing. Everyone is welcome to submit a cake to the Fig Cake Bake-Off. A panel of judges, often James Beard award winners, will choose the winners with free samples for everyone after the contest. 

The 2023 Fig Festival’s special guest will be the renowned southern chef and author Bill Smith. The festival is set for August 4-5, with a private “Higo Latino” dinner with Smith on August 2. Tickets for the dinner go on sale July 1.
