The city of Raleigh was not able to continue the tradition of Raleigh Wide Open during the last weekend of July due to budget restraints; however the Raleigh community has created its own unique festival for locals that has an important and valuable purpose.
While both celebrations are filled with food, music and fun; the new festival is all about raising money to help local residents rebuild from the April tornados.
This Saturday’s ComeUnityNow Festival will feature music, dance and arts at City Plaza in downtown Raleigh. The proceeds will help the Wake Interfaith Disaster Team and The Green Chair Project, which provides low-cost furniture for needy families, including recent tornado victims.
The ComeUnityNow Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at City Plaza on Fayetteville Street. Thirty musical acts will perform, along with dancers and artists. The festival is free, but visitors can buy $10 VIP tickets to get closer to the stages.
It’ll be a hot day, so apply lots of sunscreen and stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. This is a great opportunity to bring the whole family out and make it a family fun day!
