“Southland Jubilee is the ‘Everything Festival’,” said Kendrick Harris, Greensboro Main Street Event Coordinator. “ Our festival has something for every age and is fun for the whole family.”
At this year’s festival, you can expect to find unique vendors that will line Main Street with handmade art and crafts and your favorite festival snacks of funnel cakes and cotton candy. The car show will feature numerous classic, hot rod and other special interest cars and trucks stretching over four blocks long. Agricultural exhibits allow guests to hold a small baby chick, ride a pony and visit the petting zoo. The Southland Jubilee offers something for everyone and is fun for the whole family.
This festival is unlike any of its kind. Along with exposing visitors to the charm of Greensboro and providing attendees with a day full of fun, it is also a day that brings the community together.
