Share your photos of what you love about Downtown Wake Forest

From now through August 15, Wake Forest Downtown, Inc. is inviting you to share photos of what you love about our historic downtown. Whether it’s your favorite restaurant, watering hole, live music venue or specialty shop, here’s your chance to share with the world what you love about downtown Wake Forest.

To qualify for our “Heart of Wake Forest Social Media Campaign,” photos should be submitted in one of the following categories:

  • Retail and Service: Share a photo of yourself in or in front of your favorite retail or service business in downtown;

  • Food and Beverage: Share a photo of yourself with your favorite food or beverage from a downtown establishment;

  • Arts and Entertainment: Share a photo of yourself with your favorite piece of art (this can be public art or art for sale at a downtown establishment) or you at your favorite entertainment venue listening to music, watching a show, etc. – most likely pre-COVID-19.

Please share your pictures and messages through our online form at Over the next month, we’ll post the pictures we receive on the Wake Forest Downtown Facebook page. We also invite you to post your pictures on social media and use the hashtag #HeartofWakeForest.

Throughout the month, we will randomly pick winners to receive $50 in Downtown Dollars as our way of thanking you for your continued support of downtown Wake Forest.
