It’s that time of year… The Outer Banks Wedding Association (OBXWA) team is working hard to bring you an amazing summertime wedding planning event, the annual OBX Wedding Fest!

OBX Wedding Fest will take place on Sunday, August 28, 2022 from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Keeper’s Galley and The Barn at Haven on the Banks, located in Nags Head, NC.

A curated collection of some of the Outer Banks’ top wedding professionals, OBX Wedding Fest gives engaged couples face-to-face access to reliable and experienced vendors representing all types of services to help plan an Outer Banks wedding. The event provides a relaxed environment for attendees to sample cuisine and confections, and meet with planners, florists, officiants, DJs, photographers, venues and more.

Weddings are back in a big way and booming again on the OBX. When you plan a wedding here, you receive the priceless component of vendors who know and work with each other often. The Fest gives you access to an array of these vendors in one location and is a great opportunity for couples to visit the Outer Banks during a beautiful time of the year. Couples will learn all about what our vendors offer for any size or type of wedding and knock out essential planning to-do’s in one day!

All attendees are entered to win $500 towards their Outer Banks wedding. The randomly selected winner may use the prize with the Fest vendor(s) of their choice.
