Good Neighbor Day History

Over 2,500 Wake Forest-area residents have participated in Good Neighbor Day since its inception in 2006. Offering free food, dancing, local musicians, a disc jockey, face painting, storytelling, prizes and recreational activities for both children and adults, this family-oriented celebration promises something for everyone. 

The Human Relations Council encourages diversity and promotes goodwill among all citizens of Wake Forest. Good Neighbor Day serves as a catalyst for carrying out the Town’s vision of “building a community populated by diverse groups whose common bond is a love of our town.”
