The Red Carpet Corridor Festival returns to Wilmington on May 4, 2024 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
NEW – Downtown businesses invited to register for space in front of store
The Wilmington Chamber invites all North Water St businesses to participate in this year’s market. Businesses that register prior to April 1 will have a space reserved for them in front of their storefront. You do not need to be a Chamber member to receive this benefit.
NEW – Food vendors required to register with city
A Wilmington city ordinance now requires all mobile food vendors to apply with the city annually. You must apply directly with the city and receive approval before your space is guaranteed for this event. The city application is available at the city’s website. If you are only participating in Chamber events and not generally operating within Wilmington, you may be exempt from the annual fee. The Chamber will be in contact with food vendor applicants to help you through this process.
NEW – Vendor parking
Limited parking is available. With the planned construction of a new fire department building, the lot you may have used in past years will no longer be available. Vendors should use nearby public parking or street parking where allowed.
You may begin setting up no earlier than 7:00 a.m. after checking in at the north end of Water St. Arrive no later than 8:00 a.m. and remove all vehicles before 8:40 a.m. or spaces will be forfeited.
