Conventional wisdom advises that habits are ingrained after 21 days of repetition. If that theory holds true, then the eat~play~shop local habit requires time and effort to develop. Each month I’ll be sharing “21 Days” of some event or place in the Triangle, enabling (and I mean that in the most positive sense possible) your inner Localista to come out and play. This month it’s all about local festivals that celebrate arts, culture, food and beverage.
The streets of downtown Wake Forest become a community meeting place on May 3 where the public is invited to Meet in the Street.
Presented by the Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce, the free festival (in its 34th year) brings a day filled with food, fun and entertainment to the historic downtown streets. Expect live music and plenty of children’s activities along with dozens of booths with handcrafted arts and crafts. An entertainment stage and beer garden can be found on South White Street (where one finds White Street Brewery open daily for your local craft beer pleasure). There’s so much to enjoy at Meet in the Street the town has even made an app! Download the “Town of Wake Forest” app, available for iOS devices and Android devices, and check out the “Meet…Street” function (when available).
Keep an eye on the Facebook event page for Meet in the Street to learn more about the community festival’s plans for 2014.
