Outdoor Shopping & Dining
in Downtown Wilmington, NC

Monday October 19th – Sunday November 22nd

As of Monday, October 19th, Downtown Alive will transition into a full Parklet outdoor dining experience.  Restaurants that were within the closed street area will now have outdoor seating in the parking spaces in front of their establishments.  Downtown Business Alliance is working with city staff to allow this extension to continue through to November 22nd.  

The fall season and upcoming holiday shopping time offers a perfect opportunity to shop local at our many downtown retailers and grab you lunch or dinner at any one of our fabulous restaurants with outdoor dining.
