April 5 - 9, 2017 No matter the weather, spring doesn't begin in Wilmington until the North Carolina Azalea Festival. The annual Wednesday to Sunday celebration, one of the region's largest, attracts visitors from all over the United States and Canada. Entertainment includes a grand downtown parade, a lively street fair lined with delicious foods and interesting vendors, scores of musical and theatrical performances by local and national talent, celebrity guests, historic home and garden tours, and, naturally, a wonderland of blooming azaleas. The 2017 concert line-up includes Country artist Cole Swindell with opening acts Michael Ray and CJ Solar on Thursday, April 6th; legendary band Duran Duran will perform on Friday, April 7th; and Jason Derulo with Morris Day on Saturday, April 8th.
