Weekend at a Glance
The beginning of regular summer events are coming in full swing – be sure to take advantage of these fun outdoor affairs
By Madison Nance
Enjoy an evening of comedy with two former Second-City performers, Rebecca Fox and Rebecca Jackson-Artis, as they express their authentic comedic voices at The Rebecca Show: What if I’m The Becky? at the PIT. A duo advocating for equity, they strive to produce a show that incorporates voices never before heard on theatrical stages in North Carolina.
Kick off the end of the week with The Carolina Inn’s first Fridays on the Front Porch. Relax on the historic hotel’s shady front porch and listen to live music from Big Fat Gap, while sipping on refreshing beverages and enjoying delicious food truck fare from Bo’s Kitchen and Soom Soom Pita Pockets.
Join Hillsborough Arts Council for its 11th annual art show, Art in the Heart of Hillsborough. There will be more than 50 local artists around the Hillsborough Visitors Center and along South Cameron Street, as well as live music, two food trucks, three breweries and Smitty’s Homemade Ice Cream.
Celebrate global cultures with a street party at the Near & Far Cultural Fest. Located at the Plaza at 140 West Franklin Street, community and UNC cultural groups will share their heritage through performances, crafts, activities and interactive experiences, and a wide range of restaurants will offer a diverse food selection.
