Presented by Urban Ministries of Durham, it will be fun day of fellowship and entertainment with a free picnic lunch, a kids’ arts and crafts area, live music, and a resource area in which numerous Durham aid agencies will be available to provide opportunities to get help with a variety of services – health, financial and other community resources. Enjoy music from Shirlette Ammons, Greg Humphreys, Roger Lucey and more. 11am-2pm on Queen St. by St. Philips Church.


From 2-6pm on Sunday, a one mile stretch of road will be closed down to automobile traffic, and subsequently flooded by folks using foot powered transportation means - by foot, by bike, by board, and more.

A joint project by Clean Energy Durham, Triangle Transit, GoTriangle, Get Up & Go Durham, Durham CAN and Partnership for a Healthy Durham, they believe that by closing streets to automobile traffic and opening them as public boulevards promotes health, community, environmental awareness, and downtown’s economic growth.

Durham's vaunted fleet of vehicular food vessels will be present to provide sustenance.
