Roanoke Island Festival Park was the perfect setting for our wedding, which was further improved by the great staff! We desired to get married in the Outerbanks, but a walkable location, and a park like setting - this fit the bill all around. Everyone at Festival Park was responsive, easy to work with, and accommodating of our desires/needs. They are well prepared for many possible weather scenarios, and can adjust the set up as needed. Mike from Festival Park patiently answered all of our questions, and was there to meet us during a few visits. Beautiful location and top notch staff - we couldn't be happier with our decision to be married in Manteo!

Beautiful and spacious venue
This venue made our wedding day perfect!! We had the best water views for our vows and still had water views for our reception. We had our ceremony on the lawn behind the pavilion and our reception in the pavilion. Mike Shipley was a HUGE help to help make our visions come true. He was so patient with us and set up calls anytime we had questions. We cannot say enough about Mike Shipley, his staff and this venue. It is quiet, private, best water views and the Perfect indoor/outdoor venue!!

This was the perfect venue for our daughters wedding. So flexible. We made quite a few last minute changes due to the weather and they were so accommodating. There are so many options too. We didn’t feel like we were recreating what everyone else had already done. We were able to make it uniquely our own while still being dramatic and beautiful.
Mike and his team were so very helpful. They never made me feel like I was being mom-zilla when I called and emailed with more questions. We had the perfect experience!

Roanoke Island Festival Park is one of the most elegant and unique venues anywhere on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I've performed weddings there quite a few times over the years and everyone is always in awe of how cool the setting is. Beautiful event lawn area. Powerful stage. Numerous options. I think this option should be on your radar. Check it out!
Sunsets at this venue do not get any better on these Outer Banks! Wonderful staff that works there as well!
Roanoke Island Festival Park is such a lovely location to tie the knot. The park includes a secluded stage with a beautiful waterfront view. You can hold your reception on the stage itself or rent a tent in the spacious grassy area right next to the stage!
