WILMINGTON — New Hanover County has added two more places for Wells Fargo Championship attendees to find free parking downtown.

In addition to the four downtown parking decks that are already free to Wells Fargo Championship ticket holders, the following Cape Fear Community College parking deck and surface lot will also be free of charge beginning Saturday, May 6 through Sunday, May 7:

  • CFCC Student Lot No. 2 (surface lot; entrance on Hanover Street between 2nd and Front Streets; next to Schwartz Center)
  • Nutt Street Parking Deck (entrance at corner of Red Cross and Nutt Streets)

With the additional parking, there will be more than 2,500 free parking spots available in downtown Wilmington over the weekend.

“Wells Fargo Championship spectators are encouraged to take advantage of this downtown parking and utilize the free shuttles from the downtown transportation hub,” a press release from the county states.

A free trolley will run from or near these parking locations to the county’s transportation hub.  (Find a map of the trolley routes online.)

Ride shares can also be dropped off and picked up at the downtown transportation hub. This updated information is available on the county’s webpage at EventsNHC.com.
