UNCG is partnering with both the Glenwood neighborhood and College Hill neighborhood in planning for their respective National Night Out events.

Both events will be held on the evening of August 6, with UNCG providing activities centered around “health and wellness” and “visual and performing arts.” 

Glenwood’s National Night Out will be held at the Glenwood Recreation Center on Coliseum Blvd. beginning at approximately 6:45 p.m. Among the kid-friendly activities will be a healthful and tasty “hydration station” by UNCG’s Recipe for Success Program and movement activities offered by a member of UNCG’s Kaplan Center for Wellness. The movie “Shifting Gears,” written by and featuring UNCG MFA alumnus R. Keith Harris, will be screened.

College Hill’s National Night Out will be held at Tate Street (which will be closed to vehicles between Carr St. and Walker Ave.) starting at 5 p.m. UNCG’s Costume Shop on Tate St. will have an open house, and food will be collected for the Spartan Pantry. Additional community partners include the City of Greensboro, AARP, the Tate St. Merchants, and a variety of performers. 

The events are free-admission. Questions? Contact either of these neighborhood associations through their Facebook pages or email Nikki Baker at nikki.baker@uncg.edu.
