“Moving the festival from its original home at the Cross Creek Commons will allow the festival room to grow, while provide plenty of onsite parking, and expand the area for children’s activities,” said festival president Mike Forte. “Additionally, the move will put all vendors in a straight line, making all vendor spaces prime locations,” he added.

A new attraction at this year’s festival will be the addition of the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce Leland under the Lights car show. The festival and car show will be located on Brunswick Village Blvd.

The main entrance for all festivities will be Provision Parkway, which is the southern entrance to Brunswick Forest, across from Lanvale Road. There will be no admission charge for the car show. Admission for the Cape Fear Italian Festival will be $2, which benefits the Brunswick Community College scholarship fund.
