This Year’s Shrimp Cookoff 2019 is Sunday, November 3rd!

Posted on

The 10th Annual Shrimp CookOff is slated to be held at Ocean Boulevard Bistro & Martini Bar in  Kitty Hawk, NC – from 12:00 noon until 3:00 pm on Sunday November 3rd.  This casual, fun competition has been a huge success since 2010, and we look forward to an excellent tenth annual event.  We will have 8-10 competing chefs from around the Outer Banks, cooking fresh, local shrimp in their favorite style of preparation.  A live MC will be keeping up with announcements and door prizes and a silent auction will also be held on the second floor of Ocean Boulevard, with a People’s Choice Ballot.  The bar will be open serving Beer & Wine specials along with your favorite beverage.  The cost per person is $25 at the door, and tickets can be bought in advance at Ocean Boulevard or Outer Banks Veterinary Hospital as well as online this fall.  This year’s event is sponsored by the Nags Head Dolphin Watch, Kitty Hawk Kites, Outer Banks Veterinary Hospital, Joe Lamb Jr. & AssociatesAccess Design, and Jam Media Solutions. Keep up with this blog to see who’s competing, find out about silent auctions, connect to facebook and see who’s coming!
