New Fall Festival Will Bring Fun To Jetton Street Area of Town
With events like Christmas in Davidson, Town Day, April is for Arts, and Concerts on the Green, you could say Davidson is already a festive place. And it will be even more so on October 19 with the advent of a new annual town party, “A Taste of Davidson.”
The event will be held on the business block of Jetton Street from 6 to 10 p.m. The street will be closed off and festooned with strings of lights, and picnic tables will give attendees a place to eat and enjoy live music. Three groups have already signed up to play—Rusty Knox. The Davidson Delilahs, and the Carolina Soul Band. There will be no charge to attend, but participating restaurants will charge for their offerings of small plate food and drinks.
Kim Fleming, the Town of Davidson economic development manager, said “Taste of Davidson” will fill a niche in the town’s annual event calendar. She added, “There are many businesses in this part of town, but they don’t get the same attention as Main Street stores. The “Taste” will help shine a light on this area of town.”
