We will not be doing a printed program book for 2018. The cost of printing is just too prohibitive and the Board of OBRA had to make a sensible decision about it.

We do realize that some folks like to have a printed piece to peruse the events at their own pace, so we will put together a downloadable resource for you to help aid in getting a full picture of all 60 events happening over 4 days of programming. Please look for that in late January, if not earlier.

In past years we featured Chef Bios and recipes in the program book and we have been adding several to this website. T0 see all the past recipes (and the new ones as they post) just click on the recipe section in the horizontal navigation at the top of your screen (or dropdown on mobile). CLICK HERE for a convenient fast link to that section.


If you are just not a “website” kind of person and need help, feel free to call our event coordinator, Quinn Capps at (252) 216-9362. Quinn is happy to talk you through some of the events, make suggestions, and even help book your tickets. If you don’t catch her, please leave a voicemail message and she will call you back. It’s a hectic time so please understand.
