Happy Birthday!

Wake Forest College Birthplace

The Town of Wake Forest was incorporated on February 20, 1909, which means that the community is proudly celebrating its centennial in 2009, aptly themed “Honor the Past, Celebrate the Present, Embrace the Future.”

Wake Forest’s centennial will be honored throughout 2009, with the festivities kicking off on New Year’s Eve 2008 with the First Light Wake Forest celebration downtown. The next big bash is the Centennial Celebration, which is being widely recognized as the “Party of the Century,” on February 20, 2009, at the Ledford Center. The rest of the year holds such events as the Six Sundays in Spring Centennial Concert, Centennial Images: An Exhibit of Wake Forest Art, and the 4th of July Centennial Celebration. Ending the year is the Town of Wake Forest Christmas Gala at the New Wake Forest Town Hall.
