Canceled: Tar Heel Downtown Brings the Spirit of Carolina!

Post Date:07/26/2017 10:10 AM

Due to the threat of inclement weather, Tar Heel Downtown has been canceled. More info:

Football season is almost here and it’s time to bring the Carolina game day spirit to the heart of downtown Chapel Hill! Come out and rev-up the season from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1 on the Plaza at 140 West, prior to the season opening game-day when the University of North Carolina Tar Heels take on the California Golden Bears.

Tar Heel Downtown is a pep rally atmosphere and fan experience on Franklin Street, with a live outdoor concert featuring the sweet southern sounds of Kasey Tyndall, interactive games for kids and families, face painting, and more. The UNC Marching Tar Heels, cheerleaders, and of course...Rameses will be there too!

Hosted by the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership, UNC Athletics and the Town of Chapel Hill, Tar Heel Downtown is a very special event to our community. UNC Director of Athletics Bubba Cunningham says “Carolina Football Game Days are an opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate all that makes this Town and this University so special. Tar Heel Downtown will offer our students, alumni and fans a wonderful game day experience stretching all the way from Franklin Street to Kenan Stadium.”

As always, Chapel Hill is a bike and pedestrian friendly community and encourages everyone to cycle or walk whenever attending our great events. Find out more about this and other events by visiting  and!
