The North Carolina Azalea Festival Street Fair Presented by Wells Fargo is a free, family event with over 330 arts and craft vendors, 40 food vendors, 2 stages, a Children’s Area and a whole lot of fun! The Street Fair is located in downtown Wilmington on Water, Front, and Market Streets.
The fun starts on Friday night with the Music & Multicultural 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 are old favorites like face painting, jewelry (made from sea glass to antique buttons), t-shirts, and photography but there are also new vendors offering wine, hot sauces, candles, and local honey.
The food vendors 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.
