Join us for TOWN DAY on the Green: Saturday, May 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.



Join us for Town Day from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 6 on the town green. We encourage all citizens to walk or ride a bike (May is National Bike Month) to the green. We’ll have police officers stationed at key intersections to ensure safety. Ride your bike and park it in the ‘Bike Corral’ near the Town of Davidson’s booth.

Town Day will include two new events this year. The Davidson "Amazing Race," similar to the TV show, will take place from the downtown area to Circles at 30. and a "Sidewalk Chalk Art" event. Each participant will be given a section of sidewalk to chalk a picture that evokes what Davidson means to them.
For more information or to sign up for either event, please call 704-892-3349 or sign-up online at www.townofdavidson.org/dpr.

  • a cake walk,
