Outer Banks Community Quilt Show and Raffle
Roanoke Island Festival Park is proud to announce the return of the Outer Banks Community Quilt Show and Raffle, running March 3rd – 17th. This year’s theme is “Priceless Pieces: Past & Present” and will feature handcrafted quilts presented by local and guest quilters who have a deep connection with the Outer Banks.
The exhibit will begin with an opening reception on Friday, March 2nd from 6-8 pm in the Event Room at Roanoke Island Festival Park. Guests can enjoy light refreshments and live music performed by students from the Calvino Student Music Exchange Program. The quilt show will continue Saturday from 10 am – 4 pm and Monday – Friday from 9 am to 4 pm through March 17th. The public is invited to attend both events free of charge. Guests can also enter to win this year’s prize quilt by purchasing raffle tickets throughout the show. Tickets are $1 each or $5 for 6 tickets.
The Quilt Show has become an annual tradition at the park and offers local quilters a chance to showcase their work and share the story behind their designs. A variety of experienced quilters will be available to answer questions and explain the techniques they used to create their quilts.
Guests that are interested in purchasing quilting supplies are encouraged to attend Vendor Day on Saturday, March 10th. Local vendors will be on-site from 10 am – 4pm to offer quilting advice and sell their products. For more information, call (252) 475-1500 or visit roanokeisland.com.
