Getting to the Beer and Wine Festival
Lighthouse presents the Beer & Wine Festival, held on the Cape Fear river downtown Wilmington, NC.
The Beer & Wine Festival just made it easier for you to arrive; we’re right downtown! Come join us in in the northern riverfront district right downtown. The address to the North Waterfront Park is 11 Harnett St. it’s located right on the corner of Nutt St. and Harnett St.
There is no parking at the festival site, but downtown Wilmington has plenty of parking lots, garages and street parking so you will have absolutely no trouble! We do recommend that you bike, carpool, taxi, Uber, or bus downtown to help with the traffic!
To aid in safe departure from the festival, we invest in a fleet of taxis for the afternoon. All you have to do is wait in a line for the taxi and tip your driver—your fare is included with your admittance to the festival! As you should be able to imagine, due to the large volume of people exiting the festival at closing time, the complimentary taxi service becomes rather busy. Please plan ahead and have plenty of patience if necessary—and plan a different way home if you can’t!
The Festival’s fleet of taxis come from Yellow Cab and Lett’s Taxi, who provide a wonderful service and are very responsive. You’re welcome to call another cab company if you choose to, but be aware that you’ll be responsible for the fare.
