The area’s longest running holiday tradition – Lower Cape Fear LifeCare’s Festival of Trees

Set amidst the backdrop of the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, Lower Cape Fear LifeCare’s Festival of Trees has been delighting attendees for decades. A forest of uniquely decorated trees is sure to delight all ages.

Price of admission to the aquarium is all you need to enjoy this holiday tradition from November 17 through January 1 (Note: Lower Cape Fear LifeCare receives no proceeds from admission costs). Tickets MUST be purchase in advance.

Proceeds from Cape Fear Festival of Trees go to work immediately in our community to ensure that everyone has access to the care and support they need when they need it most, regardless of their ability to pay. Each year, proceeds from this event, along with our other fundraisers, donations, and memorials and tributes, provide more than one million dollars in care and supportive services to people in our community.
