Reduce Your Time in the Beer Line 

Due to the incredible crowds that turn out for Friday Night on White, the lines for beer are sometimes long - but they move fast. You can help us reduce the wait times even more by remembering the following:

When approaching the front of the line, be prepared to move to the next available server. There are at least three servers at each beer truck.

Have your token(s) ready.

While standing in line, read the beer descriptions and know which one you want to order or ask about. 


Parking

Free parking is available along several side streets and parking lots in downtown Wake Forest, including Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

However, some parking lots may appear to be public, when in fact they are private. Read all signage in the parking lot to determine what type of lot you are using. Private lots are intended for business patrons only. Public lots that are open to Friday Night on White attendees are clearly marked.

Please note: Due to the popularity of Friday Night on White, organizers make every effort to proceed with each concert as scheduled.
