Hungry? Get a taste of Glenwood South through The Glenwood South Neighborhood Collaborative’s 2022 edition of Glenwood Faire, taking place at Smoky Hollow (the first major event in the hip new district!) on April 24. A ticket gets you delicious samples from 15 restaurants on Glenwood South (think Vidrio, Cortez, Plates Neighborhood Kitchen, Carolina Ale House and more)—with beer and wine available for purchase as well. While you nibble, treat yourself to some retail therapy by shopping from Glenwood South retail and service businesses, and enjoying live music and dog contests.
“The Glenwood Faire allows these [Glenwood South] restaurants to reach local residents—and guests from the greater Raleigh area—and introduce them to the great food available without the cost and formality of a visit to the restaurant,” says Larry Miller, president of the Glenwood South Neighborhood Collaborative (GSNC). “This also promotes a positive image of the neighborhood to counterbalance the negative publicity often generated by the exuberant Glenwood South weekend activity…” Proving Glenwood South is more than just bars and revelry.
And even if you’re just here for the food (no judgment) at least those bites are benevolent. Glenwood Faire is an annual fundraising event for St. Saviour’s Center‘s Diaper Train program, which provides diapers to low-income families in Wake County. Started in 2010 as the first diaper bank in the area, the program serves 1,000 individual children each month, with an average distribution of 500,000 diapers per year.
Indulging in fab local eats while supporting a good cause? It doesn’t get much more satisfying than that. gsncraleigh.com/glenwood-faire
