"GREENSBORO, N.C. (May 31, 2016) The second in the First Friday On The Block series will continue on June 3rd from 6-9pm. Elm Street from MLK to Lewis St. will be closed to traffic to make room for pop up music, interactive arts programming, food trucks, and beer and wine.
Pedestrians will have full access to the area to enjoy programming coordinated synerG young Professionals, Downtown Greensboro, Inc. and ArtsGreensboro.
Other entertainment? We have plenty.

And of course, many of the Downtown businesses will be open late during the event!
Getting hungry and thirsty? In the pedestrian area, we will have brews served by Gibbs Hundred, Natty Greene’s and Preyer Brewing and wine from The Grove Winery. Food trucks for the event include Chirba Chirba, Hickory Tree BBQ and Gnam Gnam Gelato. You can also check out any of the great downtown restaurants, bars and breweries!
