Welcome Fest 2018 at Haywood Street Congregation

On Wednesday, August 22nd we'll enjoy a "festival-style" meal with music and seven local food trucks offering a variety of delicious fare onsite in our parking lot from 10:30 am - 2:00 pm. Music on the U-Leaf stage by Ashley Heath and Her Heathens; Alex Krug; Bill Berg.

Free transportation to/from the venue provided by the Wicked Weed Trolley beginning at 10 am. Pickup points include: French Broad Cholocate Lounge; Aloft Hotel; Coxe Ave. across the street slightly N. from US Post Office; and Haywood St. across from Woolworth Walk.  

Never intending to be a soup kitchen or feeding line, the Downtown Welcome Table is a homemade meal served on abundant plates by an attentive wait staff. Every Wednesday and Sunday during the lunch hour, houseless friends dine with students, retirees, the working poor and privileged professionals. Unlikely friendships are formed over a shared meal, and all are nourished.

Participating food trucks: Appalachian Chic ~ Bun Intended ~ Cecelia's Kitchen ~ Gypsy Queen ~ Mtn View BBQ ~ Out of the Blue ~ Root Down.

Earlier Event: August 17
