Events

Travelers come from all over the East Coast to attend festivals and events on the Outer Banks, and our central location in Nags Head makes Ramada Plaza a perfect home base.

Located right on the beach in Kill Devil Hills, our oceanfront property is just minutes away from annual celebrations like the Bluegrass Island Festival, Taste of the Beach, and the Outer Banks Seafood Festival. Whatever your reason for visiting Ramada Inn Nags Head, we make it easy to discover the vibrant culture on the Outer Banks.

    Trackman is one of New York City's premier comics. He gives you the perfect comedic blend of wit and sarcasm. Don't be fooled with his low key demeanor because he will surprise you with a hilarious punchline that seems to come from nowhere. Brad recorded his first CD, "Safecracker," headlining the D.C. Improv. This CD was regarded so highly by XM and Sirius radio that they both gave him his own special featuring his CD in its entirety and which included an exclusive interview. He has numerous national tv credits, just a few of which include Comedy Central, CBS's The Late Late Show, CBS's Comics Unleashed, AXS tv's Gotham Comedy Live. He also did a commercial promo campaign starring Trackman for Spike TV where he plays a presidential candidate for the 2004 election. This multitalented and clever guy with such an original style won't be kept a secret for much longer. Website - http://www.bradtrackman.com Videos – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufQOTgyDm8g

    The Outer Banks is a great place to visit in the summer. Waves, wind, and miles of uncrowded beaches are what bring so many people here. If you're here in July 13-16, think about dropping the boys off in Kill Devil Hills for some great lacrosse instruction during the evening. This camp was created to answer the demand from the OBX tourists to add lacrosse opportunities while on vacation. We made it an evening camp because we didn't want to interfere with the family beach-time. We believe that these sessions will give middle school and rising high school lacrosse players the extra skills knowledge, and reps it takes to be great!

With sharp, versatile material and an old-school ethic, Moody has performed all over North America and Asia and left them wanting more.

Couple that with a disarming stage presence & in-the-moment chops, you’ll see why he’s earned the admiration of his peers for his ability to “go up cold” and turn a dormant setting into a lively comedy room. Now based in New York City, he’s become a regular in the town’s best rooms and grown into an act that thrives in any setting, from upscale country clubs to divey pubs. Weaving sly topical jokes with crafty material and a dash of crowd-work, Moody’s likeability shines in any setting!
