We aren’t pulling your leg! With Easter falling on April 1 this year, we’ve moved April Foods’ Day to April 8. Presented by Planet Fitness, HomeTowne Realty of Garner, Mr. Roof and the Town of Garner in partnership with the Downtown Garner Association.  Come downtown and join us for an afternoon filled with food, fun, shopping, and entertainment. This free event is open to the public and will have something for everyone to enjoy!

Your favorite food trucks will be cooking up and dishing out delicious, mouth watering eats to satisfy your taste buds.

We’ve got a great line-up for you with 15 trucks including:

And 3 local craft breweries will be serving ice cold beer – including Garner’s first brewery – perfect for a beautiful spring day!

Enjoy some local entertainment while you grab a bite to eat with your family and friends!

City Dirt Trio, an acoustic group with bluegrass roots, will be providing live music throughout the afternoon.  Youth attending The Gifted Arts, an awe-inspiring nonprofit organization located in Downtown Garner, will also be performing.

Want to get a jumpstart on shopping for Mom, Dad, or your favorite grad?

Look no further! A host of local craft vendors are joining the line-up on Main Street.  Shop everything from apparel to bath and body products to wood and metal crafts with artisans including Late Night Fabrication, Fat Kitten Bath Bombs, Wildside Tie Dyes, and more!

Is there something fun for my kiddos to do while I eat and drink?

Heck yeah!  The Garner Police Athletic/Activities League (PAAL) is hosting a kids’ zone with a variety of fun, exciting activities – chalk art, crafts, and more – to keep your children happily entertained while you eat, shop, and enjoy the live entertainment.

Interested in volunteering?  

We rely on volunteers like you to help us set up and tear down for our events.  Volunteers get a $10 voucher to use at the food trucks and a Downtown Garner t-shirt.  Sign up today!

This event will be held rain or shine. Due to the crowds and food we kindly request that our four-legged friends stay home.

Mark your calendars for April 8, 12-5pm on Main Street – invite your family and friends to come out to support Downtown Garner and the local community while enjoying a fun-filled afternoon!  We hope to see you there!
