Calling All Bakers!

Enter your cake in the Ocracoke Fig Cake Bake-Off!

Join in the Fun at the 4th Annual Ocracoke Fig Festival

Two Award Categories:

Traditional Ocracoke Recipe (You can find the traditional recipe in local cookbooks, or here.)

Innovative (Anything goes, as long as it's figgy!)

Enter in one or both categories; cakes are judged on Presentation, Traditional/Innovative Flavors, and Figginess. 

Deliver your uncut Fig Cake entry to the little Visitor Center (on the other side of the Coyote Den) at the Community Square between 10am and 3pm on Saturday, August 19th. 

Judging begins at 4:00pm; hosted on-site by Daphne Bennink, live on WOVV 90.1 FM or wovv.org

Free samples for everyone after the judging! Winners announced at 7pm, just before the Ocracoke Rockers take the stage! 

The Fig Cake Bake-Off is the main event of Ocracoke's Fig Festival – a 2-day celebration of Ocracoke's love affair with sweet and delicious figs. The fun begins Friday evening with an evening event at the Ocracoke Preservation Society Museum from 6–8pm. Chester Lynn, Ocracoke's fig expert, will give a presentation about Ocracoke may fig tree varieties, the figs they bear, and how Ocracokers like to eat them. There'll be fig cake for all, a Traditional Ocracoke Square Dance with caller Desiree Ricker and live music with Molasses Creek, and fig-related items available in the OPS Museum gift shop.

Saturday's events begin at 10am with vendor booths (selling all things fig-tastic!), live music from local musicians, fun for kids, and more!
