Cape Fear Festival Of Trees At Cameron Art Museum


The Cape Fear Festival of Trees returns as one of the most heart-warming holiday traditions in our area. During the two-week festival, you are invited to wander through a winter wonderland of holiday elegance. Glittering trees decorated by local businesses, various organizations and individual artists transform the museum space into an enchanted forest.

In addition to the dazzling array of trees, enjoy performances by over 30 local musical groups and artists. Treat your ears to the wonderful sounds of harps, handbell choirs, ukulele choirs, a capella singing and more. Included in your festival admission.

New to this year’s Festival of Trees is the Art of Gingerbread 2014 – Exhibition & Competition. Running throughout the festival, between 10 and 20 incredible baked creations will be on view and competing for an overall winner decided by an online auction. Proceeds from this auction benefit the Cameron Art Museum Educational programming.
