The Outer Banks Seafood Festival Board of Directors announced today that the 2020 Outer Banks Seafood Festival will be postponed until October 2021. With the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers and staff uppermost in mind, as well as the many unknowns regarding crowd gatherings and the obstacles around them, the decision was made to ensure that the Festival will remain a happy, positive event.
“The mission of the Outer Banks Seafood Festival is to provide a fun and educational experience, while at the same time promoting, honoring and celebrating our coastal seafood heritage and community,” said 2020 Outer Banks Seafood Festival Chair Richard Hess. “With the need for social distancing due to COVID-19, we didn’t feel we could provide the same fun experience that our attendees have come to love.”
Stay tuned for information regarding a bigger and better 2021 event the weekend of October 15th, 2021 as well as the opportunity to purchase limited edition 2020 Festival t-shirts!
