The 34th Annual Meet in the Street® festival will take place Saturday, May 3, in historic downtown Wake Forest. Presented by the Wake Forest Area Chamber of Commerce, Meet in the Street offers a day filled with food, fun and entertainment, including live music and children’s activities. 

The entire downtown area will be blocked off for this year's festival. Over 100 artisans' booths featuring handcrafted arts and crafts and downtown merchants will be set up along South Taylor Street and South Brooks Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. along South White Street, where an entertainment stage and beer garden will also be provided. 

Outstanding local acts, including Cirque De Vol and Flow Circus, are scheduled to perform in the Performance Plaza, along with a variety of martial arts and cheerleading academies and dance troupes. Finger snapp'in, toe tapp'in live music will be provided on the Main Stage,  located on South Main Street in the vicinity of the Beer Garden, by such popular groups as East Coast Rhythm & Blues Band, David Dixon Acoustic and The Will McBride Group.

In addition to the popular Children’s Carnival, Bicycle Safety Fair, and Fire Truck exhibit, we have added food trucks, the Carolina Hurricanes Storm Squad - including the crowd favorite 'Stormy' - and an activity truck where you can make your own Tie Dye T-shirt!
