Azalea Festival moves concerts downtown to CFCC


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Thousands more people will be able to enjoy the North Carolina Azalea Festival's concerts at a larger location next April.

Organizers announced Cape Fear Community College's parking lot on North Front Street across from the Schwartz Center will be the venue for the festival's headliner concerts. The extra space will nearly double capacity from UNCW's Trask Coliseum, where the concerts had been held for years.

The concerts will now also feature food and beverage sales. Organizers hope the changes will keep ticket prices desirable and secure more big-name acts.

Festival organizers say they will make provisions for CFCC student parking and any students who may be displaced during the concerts.
