The North Carolina Azalea Festival Street Fair is a free, family event with over 200 arts and craft vendors, 40 food vendors, 4 stages, a children’s area and a whole lot of fun! The Street Fair is located in downtown Wilmington on Water, Front, and Market Street.
The fun starts on Friday night with Riverfront Park Stage entertaining the crowds and food vendors filling the air with scrumptious smells. The fun continues on Saturday and Sunday.
The arts and craft booths cover the entire stretch of the Street Fair and there is something for everyone. There will be old favorites like face painting, jewelry (made from sea glass to antique buttons), t-shirts, and photography but there will also be new vendors offering wine, hot sauces, candles, and local honey.
The food vendors will have the staples- funnel cakes, fresh made lemonade, gyros, kettle corn and ice cream but if you’re looking for something more adventurous; a deep fried Oreo or an eight pound gummy bear will be sure to hit the spot!
Multiple stages offer all kinds of family-friendly entertainment. In 2013 we welcomed a Praisefest on Friday night to the Squonk Opera Saturday and Sunday…to the NC A&T Drum Line and an Acapella Competition….we had plenty to keep you entertained!
Thank you to all who joined us in 2013!
