2017 Cape Fear Festival of Trees

at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher

November 20 - December 31




We are continuing a long-time, well recognized holiday tradition! Surrounded by the unique aquatic life of our coastal community, your sponsored tree will be set against the backdrop of the tranquil environs of the Aquarium's upper and lower mezzanines, and select areas inside the conservatory! Trees may be sponsored in memory of a loved one or in tribute of a special person.

Sponsors also receive general admission tickets good for use at any time during the festival and an invitation to the Jingle with the Jellies donor recognition party.

This year, the full Festival runs from November 20-December 31, 2017

*Don't miss your chance to sponsor a tree. Limited number of trees are available.

Please see the sponsorship information below!



All General Admission tickets, group purchases, or inquiries should be directed the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher. Call 910-772-0500 or go to .   Your purchase of NC Aquarium tickets also grants you entrance to the Festival of Trees, at no additional charge.

 The Cape Fear Festival of Trees hours are the same as the Aquarium's business hours: 9am-5pm daily with the exception of Thanksgiving Day. Many trees will remain at the Aquarium for the remainder of the month of December, to be enjoyed a bit longer!
