How do I get there? Where can I park?

Click for Thursday directions & parking and Friday directions & parking

Can I bring my dog?

Yes, sort of. The Thursday block party portion of the festival becomes pretty crowded in the streets, so if your pup can handle it, and is very people-friendly, dog-friendly, & well-behaved, then sure! For the Friday Bug Crawl portion, all of the live music venues are inside, so best to leave doggos at home that day.

Will there be adult beverages available for purchase?

Thursday: Yes, there will be an outdoor bar on the street as well as a variety of restaurants to purchase from. Friday: Yes, most of the Bug Crawl live music venues will have alcohol available for purchase. Please bring your ID for both days.

Is the event cash-only or are credit cards able to be used?

Both, we will have an outdoor ATM on Thursday. Friday, most of the venues take cash & credit cards.

Can I bring a chair for Thursday?

Yes, however we do not recommend it unless you need it, as the street portion of the festival becomes crowded and many of the indoor live music venues will have some seating as well. For Friday, you can leave your chairs at home.

Is there food available on Thursday?

YES we will have lots of great food options including vegan/vegetarian selections.

What happens if it rains?

Both days of the Wilmington festival are rain or shine. 

Are kids welcome?

YES! This is an all-ages, family-friendly event.
