Joy Tuba World - A Tuba Christmas in Winston-Salem

Joy Tuba World - A Tuba Christmas was a well-attended introduction to the Christmas Season in Downtown Winston-Salem on Friday night. 

Tuba Christmas began in 1974, and the first Tuba Christmas was performed in Rockefeller Plaza Ice Rink. Since then, events have popped up across the world as Tuba and Euphonium players unite to perform familiar Christmas tunes. The free show included about fifty musicians, ranging in age from 10-77.  Some musicians travelled more than two hours to perform in Tuba Christmas.

This is the 4th year Tuba Christmas has performed in Winston-Salem.  The concert was in the Contemporary Center of First Presbyterian Church on Cherry Street downtown.

Demolition to Begin This Saturday at Merschel Plaza in Downtown Winston-Salem

August 15, 2018. More change coming! Demolition of the pedestrian bridge at Merschel Plaza will start this Saturday, August 18 at 8:00am. The open green space, between the Pepper Building and XCaret (red awning), sits at the intersection of Trade, 4th, and 3rd Streets in downtown Winston-Salem. This block of downtown will house a new park with public restrooms. Kaledeium will become a bigger part of downtown; Imagine a year from now, busloads of school kids coming to Winston-Salem on a field trip. They'll explore Old Salem and come down the street to see the Children's Museum or Kaledium, our Science Center. The Pepper Building and surrounding structures will soon provide a much different view!

This pedestrian bridge in Merschel Plaza will be demolished on Saturday.

In February 2018, the City of Winston-Salem shared the concept plan for Merschel Plaza.  This was provided by Mayfair Development and is not the final design plan.  You can see the video concept on YouTube here. 

Merschel Plaza Vision Concept shared today at the DWSP Annual Meeting Today

The Big Chill 2018

On a hot summer Sunday afternoon in Winston-Salem, a crowd came together to chill out, listen to live music, and enjoy many different homemade ice creams!  Entry was free, donations were appreciated.

Held on National Ice Cream Day, The Big Chill Ice Cream Festival and FUNdraiser was held at Bailey Park.  Local churches and organizations passed out little cup samples of homemade ice cream.  Adults and children wandered from tent to tent tasting many different flavor, while live music played on the stage.  Food Lion was there with a big freezer chest of complimentary ice cream sandwiches and fudge bars!  Each table sported a cup for donations, which were to benefit The Shalom Project in Winston-Salem.  The Shalom Project provides a Medical Clinic & Pharmacy, Food Pantry, Clothing Closet and Welcome Table programs.

Bailey Park is a unique urban green space in downtown Winston-Salem.  Bailey Park has a large grassy lawn, covered stage, restroom facilities and a food truck court.  Bailey Park hosts many free community events including music series and special events, outdoor movies, and yoga on the grass.
