We’re so excited for this year’s Meet in the Street in Wake Forest on Saturday, May 5th from 10 am – 5 pm. Want more family fun? We’ve created a printable bingo board – just find five in a row, and come to the Newcomb and Company booth to receive your prize! After stopping by our booth, don’t forget to check out some of the other awesome events, musical productions, and entertainment.
This is the 38th annual Meet in the Street, and the music and food promises to be the best yet. Pack some chairs or blankets and head to Owen Street to hear live music all day long, or check out the Performance Plaza on Taylor Street. You’ll see martial arts shows, ballet, baton performances, and a magician. The Beer Garden is sponsored by White Street Brewing Company – you’ll find it in the Fidelity parking lot on Owen Street, so it’s the best place to enjoy the music from the main stage.
Local arts and crafts vendors will be selling a variety of wares, and the Young Entrepreneur’s Fair at the Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce on White Street will feature works by our youngest entrepreneurs, some as young as nine years old! You’ll fill up on Fully Loaded Fritters, Kona Ice, Pelican’s SnoBalls, Lumpy’s Ice Cream, Big Al’s, and other food from your favorite Wake Forest food trucks.
Take the free shuttle from Sam’s Club in Wake Forest, or ride a rickshaw if you get tired once you’re there. If you’ve got little ones, don’t forget to stop by the Children’s Village on Taylor Street, where you’ll find arts and crafts activities and bounce houses. Keep your eye out for Muddy the Mudcat, the Carolina Mudcats mascot! Love the Mudcats? So do we! Enter to win free tickets to see the Carolina Mudcats, or stop by our Newcomb and Company booth at Meet in the Street to learn more. We’ll see you in the street!
