OBX Festival of Trees

Festive, fun and worthwhile!

Festival of Trees is a unique community fundraiser that supports programming, services, shelter, training, information, and resources to address domestic and sexual violence in the Outer Banks. Festival of Trees brings together individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to celebrate the holiday season with twinkling lights, festive musical performances, punch and homemade cookies, and shopping for one-of-a-kind gifts.


All of the events are open to the public free of charge except Saturday evening’s Festival of Trees and Benefit Auction, which requires the purchase of a ticket to attend. The culmination of the Festival is an auction of donated, decorated Christmas Trees, and Artistic Masterpieces. Festival of Trees is fresh and new each year — a not to be missed Outer Banks holiday tradition!


There are a variety of ways to become involved in the Festival of Trees from sponsorship to donating a tree, to attending any one or all of the planned events. Below you can see how you can participate, volunteer, buy tickets and attend the festivities.


The 2017 Outer Banks Festival of Trees was extraordinary and we look forward to all the great new things and achievements the Outer Banks Hotline will accomplish with the help of everyone who participated, volunteered, and attended. Your hard work and donations will go a long way in the Hotline’s Prevention and Intervention programs. Thank you all!
