Wilmington Wine and Chocolate Festival opens Friday, February 3rd

Jan 27, 2012

The Wilmington Wine and Chocolate Festival is about much more than wine and chocolate.  Set up to resemble a European Street Fair, the Festival will offer sweet and savory gourmet treats, live music, and fine art in the form of jewelry, pottery, textiles, photography, and paintings. 

Organizer Marianna Stacy stopped by the WHQR studios on Friday, January 27th to talk with Rachel Lewis Hilburn about why the growth of this annual event has forced it into a new, roomier venue.    Ms. Stacy also  explained how proceeds from ticket sales directly benefit the area's senior citizen community.

During our Classical block on Tuesdays through Fridays at 12:06, Jemila Ericson and other staff members host a celebration of the arts and culture of the Lower Cape Fear. They interview artists, actors, dancers, writers and creators of community events--all the inspiring movers and shakers who enrich our lives.
