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. 

  • 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.

Uber & Lyft

Anyone planning to use Uber or Lyft to take you to or from Friday Night on White (FNOW) is encouraged to set the Wake Forest Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks St., as the destination and pickup location.

Streets in the FNOW event area close at 2:00 pm and remain closed until cleared and cleaned, which is typically around 11-11:30 pm. By designating Town Hall as the destination and/or pickup location, you'll make it easier for yourself and your driver to connect, plus the festivities along South White Street are only a short block away.


Items Allowed

Bring a lawn chair and blanket - but if you bring a lawn chair and/or blanket, please place them in the street - not on the sidewalk. Please leave the sidewalks open for pedestrians.

Please leave your pets (except for service animals), coolers and outside alcoholic beverages at home.

Weather

In the event of inclement weather on the day of a concert, a decision on whether to proceed will be made no later than 3 p.m. Updated concert information will be posted on the Town's Facebook page and Nextdoor site.

Smart phone users who have downloaded the Town of Wake Forest app will receive a push notification message concerning any schedule changes.
