Waterfront Street Fair Multicultural Stage Presented by El Cerro Grande restaurants & Zócalo Street Food | Tequila

April 6 - April 7


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. Our Waterfront 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.

We also have a Multicultural element in our Parade on the streets of historic downtown Wilmington on Saturday morning of the Festival. Look for the “Multicultural March of Nations” which features multiple ethnic marchers, performers, and band members dressed in authentic traditional costumes and a float draped with International flags. See the Parade page for more info.
