Autumn With Topsail Festival

October 18th, 19th & 20th, 2024

Welcome to the Autumn with Topsail Festival

This 3-day festival, started in 1988, features a juried Artists’ and Crafts Court with over 100 regional artists displaying and selling their work. Enjoy exciting live musical entertainment, with a variety of amazing food with a beer and wine tent, a silent auction, and a bouncy house area for children. AWT is HSTI’s largest annual fundraiser. It takes over 300 volunteers to make the Autumn with Topsail Festival happen each year-from festival chairman to committee chairpersons to trash removal to ticket sales and logistics-we have a place for you!

FREE Shuttle Service will be provided from various parking areas in Topsail Beach to the Festival Grounds. Please remember NO PETS are permitted unless they are licensed service dogs.

Please remember NO PETS are permitted on the festival grounds. Service animals specially trained to assist a person with a disability are welcome. Emotional support animals, comfort animals, and therapy dogs are not service animals under Title III of the ADA and are not permitted on the festival grounds.
