Guide to Wake Forest

Have you ever needed the telephone number for a particular department in the Town of Wake Forest or an address for one of the town’s parks or other facilities? Have you ever been curious about Wake Forest’s history or wanted information about area schools or healthcare providers? Are you new to Wake Forest and looking for fun places to go and things to do in our area?

If you are a Wake Forest resident and you answered yes to any of those questions, then the Town of Wake Forest has a special gift just for you: the Official Guide to the Town of Wake Forest.

In December 2015 every Wake Forest resident who lives in the 27587 zip code was mailed their very own copy of the Guide to Wake Forest. This clever, all-in-one handbook provides useful information about all things Wake Forest, including an overview of the town’s history, a description of town departments, a listing of annual community events and advertisements for several local businesses. The guide also contains important contact numbers, as well as comprehensive information about town programs and services, volunteer opportunities and local government. There are also sections devoted to area attractions, civic clubs, plus a whole lot more. 

Not sure what number to call when the lights go out? It’s in there! Curious about where to get your driver’s license renewed or obtain a marriage license? That’s in there too! But these are just a few examples of what you’ll find inside the Guide to Wake Forest. 

The Town of Wake Forest publishes this comprehensive guide. Presented in full color, the 116-page booklet is designed to educate and inform area residents – especially newcomers to Wake Forest – about all our community has to offer.

The 2019-2020 edition of The Official Guide to Wake Forest is scheduled to publish in late 2018. A limited number of advertising spaces are available.
