With summer in full swing and kids getting out of school, the season of vacation and relaxation is upon us. With that in mind, we decided to pull together a few special events happening in the area around Zebulon. Check them out and feel free to add other events you want to attend in the comments below!
Destination Dix 2.0
Big Field at Dix Park; Raleigh; June 1st, 3:00 to 9:00 p.m.; FREE
Recently, Raleigh City Council adopted the Dorothea Dix Park Master Plan for future development. As a celebration, the city is throwing the Destination Dix 2.0 block party at the Big Field on Saturday, June 1st. Family-friendly and pet-friendly, the event will feature live music, foods, drinks, brews, rides, a carousel, field games, inflatables, and more. It’s a celebration that you won’t want to miss, and it will give the kids some fun-filled activities to celebrate the end of the school year. RSVPing is not required, but it is appreciated.
Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival (Plant-Based Edition)
Mason Street Manor; Franklinton; June 15th, 2:00 to 10:00 p.m.; $10
Join Mother Earth Brewing and Spirits, VegSouth Entertainment, and Mason Street Manor in the first annual Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival (Plant-Based Edition). From shopping vendors to spirits, from food and free samples to live music and more, the event is sure to be a hit for everyone. Though minors are required to have a parent or guardian with them, children are invited to attend the celebration as well. The drive to Franklinton is roughly half an hour, but the festivities promise that the trek will be worth it. With coffee, fabrics, candles, and other companies selling their wares, you might even get a few choice gifts out of it!
Durham Refugee Day
Durham Central Park; Durham; June 23rd, 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.; FREE
In honor of the city’s refugee and immigrant population, Durham is hosting a Refugee Day thrown by CWS Durham and World Relief Durham. A great way to integrate your kids in a diverse population full of rich culture, the celebration will feature food vendors from across the globe, live music and entertainment, and fun activities for children. Plus, attendance is a great way to show that our state celebrates our people groups and welcomes all.
We hope this summer is full of fun activities for you and your family. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us here.
