LIVE New Wilmington as a community organization is working hard to bring Wilmington area residents more opportunities for connection and celebration. In addition to promoting the many wonderful events our community is already hosting, our own committees of volunteers have orchestrated some pretty exciting happenings in the months to come.

And as always, we would love to welcome more hands and voices to the cause. If any of these events resonate with you in a extra special way, please visit our Get Involved page to connect with committee organizers.
