COVID-19 causes cancellation of several summer events


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Wake Forest has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Friday Night on White concert series, Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park, Memorial Flag-Raising Ceremonies, and in-person Independence Day festivities.  However, a virtual Fireworks Spectacular will be offered on July 3. 

The decision to suspend these summer staples was based on the unpredictability of the coronavirus, a desire to safeguard the health and safety of the community, and an expectation that residents will not be allowed to gather safely in large groups for the foreseeable future.

These events are expected to resume in 2021.
