Join us at the Special Events Community Engagement Meeting to discuss several events taking place in Downtown Raleigh during the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons. This meeting will consist of a moderated discussion where event organizers will provide an overview of their event, with a focus on why the event is good for the City as a whole, how they engage with the public, and who the community can contact should questions arise. These presentations will be followed by a Q&A opportunity for the audience to gather more information, while helping event organizers understand what they can do to make their event a success for all involved parties.
