Street Fair Music & Multicultural Stage

April 8


Piedmont Natural Gas Multicultural Stage

The Multicultural Stage is a FREE multicultural, family-friendly celebration that showcases different cultures flourishing here in the Greater Cape Fear Region. You will marvel at the authentic costumes, dance, and music of some of our best ethnic performing groups and bands. Enjoy the sounds, food, and arts and craft booths from around the world! Our Street Fair Multicultural Stage line-up features contemporary and classical music from China, the Middle East, Mexico, Polynesia, Hawaii, Japan, Latin America, Ireland, and many more. Look for the “Multicultural March of Nations” float on the streets of historic downtown Wilmington during the Parade on Saturday. International flags drape the multicultural float accompanied by multiple ethnic marchers, performers, and band members dressed in authentic traditional costumes.

Liverpool performs mainly at major festivals and corporate concerts and is known for perfect harmonies. The Beatles recorded with and used Vox amps for their true authentic sound…so does Liverpool. The Beatles recorded and played guitars from Hofner, Rickenbacher, Casio, Epiphone, Fender and Gretsch…so does Liverpool. The Beatles recorded and played with Ludwig drums and Zildjian cymbals…so does Liverpool. You will be singing to the first song you hear!
