Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Wake Forest has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park. 

The decision to suspend this summer staple 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.

Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park is expected to resume in 2021.

Pre-Show Activities

Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park will also include movie-related pre-show activities beginning at 7:15 p.m.
