Entertainment includes a grand downtown parade; a lively street fair, lined with delicious foods and crafty vendors; scores of musical and theatrical performances by local and national talent; celebrity guests; historic home and garden tours; and a wonderland of flowering azaleas. The 2020 concert line-up has been announced. This year’s headliners are Sublime with Rome and Michael Franti & Spearhead. All acts will perform at the Main Stage Festival Site - the lot adjacent to Cape Fear Community College Schwartz Center.  Tickets are $40, with a $10 increase day of show.
