Much like our campus, there is no shortage of unique activities to do here in the city of Wilmington. Especially during the summer, Wilmington has a variety of things to do that are priced with the students in mind…..some events are even free! So whether you are taking classes or just looking to spend a relaxing summer at the Dub, rest assured you will certainly be entertained.
Take a look below at two of the most popular summer activities in the Port City!
Wilmington Sharks Baseball
Love enjoying the summer weather at the ballpark? Every summer, the Wilmington Sharks take the field down at Legion Stadium. The Sharks are a part of the Coastal Plain League, one of many collegiate summer leagues that allow college baseball players to hone their skills in the off-season. The Sharks offer an exciting atmosphere and chance to see future major-leaguers. You can catch them beginning in the end of May and continuing until the beginning of August. And the best part- general admission is only $6.50! Take a bite out of summer with the Wilmington Sharks!

Downtown Sundown Summer Concert Series
If live music is your more your style, you’ll find no shortage of concerts in the Wilmington area. Each summer, Wilmington Downtown, Inc. hosts a summer concert series called “Downtown Sundown.” Downtown Sundown occurs every Friday starting in late May and continuing through late August. Each week features live music from an opening act beginning at 6pm, with the headliner taking the stage at 8pm. The main acts feature amazing tribute bands that look, sound, and act like the real thing, and many of these bands specifically request to play Downtown Sundown each year thanks to the enthusiasm of local Wilmingtonians. Downtown Sundown takes place at Riverfront Park in our historic downtown area, right on the water across from the Battleship North Carolina, and is completely free!
