The Annual Outer Banks Hotline Festival of Trees will be held at the Village Beach Club
December 6th – December 7th

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!
