Riverlights Festival of Trees
December 3rd | 3pm-7pm
109 Pier Master Point | Wilmington, NC 28412
Mark your calendars to kick off the Christmas season at Riverlights for our 2nd Annual Festival of Trees!
Join us Saturday, December 3rd at Marina Village starting from 3 pm – 7pm with a wonderfully holiday-curated pop-up market featuring 30+ local vendors by The Groove. While you shop, and await the tree lighting at dusk enjoy street performances from The Nutcracker with the Wilmington Ballet Company, holiday music performed by the Eugene Ashley High School band, visits with characters from the family-favorite “Frozen” and, of course, an opportunity to chat and have photos with Santa! A & M's Red Food Truck will be here serving sliders and tacos and Coastal Craft Creamery will have holiday flavored ice cream available for purchase.
The center square, Live Oak Commons will shine with holiday magic featuring the star of the show a 20’ Christmas tree, and around the perimeter additional Christmas trees will be decorated to showcase local non-profits’ missions. At dusk, we will light the trees, and ask all attendees to vote for their top two tree displays and Riverlights will make a charitable donation to those organizations.
We can’t wait to celebrate the holidays with you at Riverlights!
The Festival of Lights trees will illuminate every evening, rain or shine, from December 3rd – Dec. 31, 2022 from dusk till 10 pm.
