We are happy to see more events and live music coming back to Wilmington, North Carolina. We have been missing the many festivals and outdoor concerts we are so accustomed to in our dynamic and vibrant riverfront city.
Bring your chairs, blanket and picnic dinner as you join in on a wonderful summer tradition by the Airlie Oak. Enjoy live music while taking in all the beauty of Airlie Gardens. With a schedule full of local Wilmington bands, be sure to check out their lineup, as concerts will sell out.
The Hugh Morton Amphitheater, better known as Greenfield Lake Amphitheater, is truly one of the most magical and intimate places to see a show or play. With a backdrop of ancient cypress trees, towering pines and the lake, this venue offers a one-of-a-kind experience. Shows already scheduled this year include Tedeschi Trucks, Umphrey’s McGee, Scotty McCreery, Shakey Graves, Band of Horses, The Revivalists, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Big Something and many more.
Live Nation is managing the Riverfront Park Amphitheater on the northern end of the Riverwalk in Historic Downtown Wilmington. This brand new and large capacity outdoor amphitheater will offer 2,400 seated and 4,800 lawn ticketed options, as well as a VIP area and on-site food and beverage options. With the natural setting of the Cape Fear River, the Battleship North Carolina and Riverwalk as the backdrop, concert goers will relish in the state-of-the-art facility. Check out the calendar of events lined up already including live music and comedy.
Although it was delayed, it is great to see the North Carolina Azalea Festival events happening again in Wilmington. July and August will see the Azalea Festival parade, street fair, concerts and the garden party.
Every 2nd Thursday, The Bellamy Mansion hosts “Jazz at the Mansion”. Be sure to bring your blankets and chairs and enjoy an evening out on the lawn! Beer, wine and snacks are available to purchase as well.
