The Wedding Tour is an extremely popular self-guided venue tour where all ticket holders have the opportunity to visit with vendors and businesses throughout the OBX, from Sanctuary Vineyards in Currituck, to event homes in Carova, down to restaurants and venues in Manteo, and dozens of places in between! Get your fix with more spirits and samples, see venues set up like a wedding, and enjoy additional savings and giveaways from vendors on the Tour. Try to visit as many as you can, as they are eager to visit with you!

VIP Ticket holders should bring their lanyard they receive. Each Tour stop they visit they will receive a sticker which counts as additional entries into the VIP package giveaways at the Expo on Sunday.
