This year’s 32nd Annual North Carolina Jazz Festival (February 2 to 4) kicks off on Thursday night with a concert featuring a “Styles of Jazz” performance. The festival features 15 world-renowned musicians. Cabaret-style seating and all-star musicians distinguish this event as one of the largest traditional jazz festivals in the Southeast. Thursday, Friday and Saturday night concerts take place at the Hilton Wilmington Riverside (301 N. Water Street, Wilmington). On Saturday morning patrons will enjoy an all-star jazz brunch. Special hotel rates are available to festival attendees. 

The 4th Annual Cape Fear Wildlife Expo (March 16 to 18) is a family event that features wildlife art and decoy displays; book signings by regional outdoor writers; hunting and fishing products; boats and accessories; truck and ATV displays; fly-fishing and decoy-carving demonstrations; conservation exhibits; outdoor sports guides and outfitters. 

The expo’s mission is to encourage youth to enjoy the great outdoors through hunting, fishing and other outdoor sports and to heighten public awareness of the region’s natural resources and to encourage conservation of these natural resources. Kids will enjoy interactive activities such as Sensory Safari, Aquatic Trailer, Mallard Madness Laser Shoot, Muzzy 200 Club Monster Buck display, and Kids Gone Wild academic workshops. Admission charge: Adult $10, Seniors (65 and over) $7, Children 10 years and under are free.
