This Year’s Shrimp Crawl 2021 is Saturday and Sunday, November 6th-7th!

The 12th Annual Outer Banks Shrimp Cookoff will be another Shrimp Crawl! Participants loved the crawl last year, and so we are bringing it back! The Outer Banks Shrimp Crawl will be held over the weekend of November 6th and 7th, 2021 throughout the Outer Banks to benefit the Outer Banks Center for Dolphin Research! Local chefs will compete to prepare the best shrimp dish appetizer. Take the weekend to visit up to 4 restaurants and vote for your favorite shrimp!  The event will also featured a virtual silent auction with donations from local businesses. Our volunteers will be at restaurant locations to teach about local dolphin conservation.

Sponsors for this year’s event will be the Nags Head Dolphin Watch, Kitty Hawk Kites, Outer Banks Veterinary Hospital, Saltbox Cafe, Twiddy Realty, Access Design, and JAM Media Solutions! Stay posted for updates on participating restaurants and sponsors!
