We’re excited about this year’s CityCamp NC and continuing to host it in downtown Raleigh. With a September event, however, there’s are always other events going on, big and small. This year’s CityCamp NC falls on the same weekend as the International Bluegrass Festival that Raleigh is hosting. Street festivals and other outdoor performances will result in street closures but that shouldn’t impact any CityCamp NC events.
Here’s our breakdown of the weekend to help you navigate your way in and out of downtown Raleigh even with some streets being closed.
We highly recommend downloading the downtown Raleigh app which is helpful with seeing road closures, downtown circulator information, and parking.
Our CityCamp NC kickoff is at HQ Raleigh’s Cannon Room in the Capital Club building. This is not to be confused with their Harrington Street location in the warehouse district nearby.
On the evening of 9/28, Martin Street in front of HQ Raleigh will be closed as crews prepare for the festivities the next day. Our recommendation is to navigate straight to a parking deck and walk two or three blocks to the Cannon Room. Possible locations would be:
If you need to make a drop-off first, our recommendation is to drive to 235 South Salisbury Street. That puts you around the corner from HQ Raleigh, away from the closed streets. Try and stay away from the tasty treats at Lucettegrace! 😉
Friday Evening Social at Google Fiber
After our event ends at 5pm, we invite all attendees to join us at Google Fiber at 5:30 who is hosting us for drinks and heavy eats. It is a nice, 20 minute walk but we recognize that it may not be convenient for everyone.
If driving, nearby parking to Google Fiber includes:
The downtown circulator, the R-Line, has a stop one-block away from Church on Morgan and one block away from Google Fiber. You can track the buses on the downtown Raleigh app.
Other alternatives are cabs, pedicabs, and carpooling. Let us know if there are any questions as we want to make this transition between venues as smooth as possible.
