The Statesville Civic Center is proud to be a part of Friday night's Wedding Stroll.

Downtown Statesville is hosting a one-of-a-kind bridal fair this Friday, Sept. 28, and inviting all brides-to-be to enjoy a night of special treatment by many downtown businesses.   It’s called the “Wedding Stroll” and is free for brides, grooms, and, of course, the bridal entourage.

It’s a chance to stroll and explore Downtown Statesville’s unique collection of boutique shops and wedding venues, consult with florists and photographers, try on dresses and rings, create gift registries and even rent tuxedos or champagne glasses. 

“Downtown is not only a good place to get help in planning a wedding, it’s a great place to have a wedding,” said Marin Tomlin, Downtown Statesville Development Corporation Executive Director.  “The Wedding Stroll will provide brides and their entourage a unique opportunity to see how our downtown businesses can assist them with their special day while enjoying refreshments and samples along the way."

Kenny Roberts, Statesville Civic Center Director, said his staff will be ready to show brides all the different ways the Civic Center can be used to celebrate a wedding.  "We will have rooms set up for the brides to look at and lots of examples of how the Civic Center can be tailored to meet each bride's dreams."

There will be special drawings and lots to do from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.  Pre-register by calling 704-878-3436 or email  Same day registration is also available, but the first 75 brides to pre-register will receive a free gift bag.

Brides can register and pick up a program and their gift bags at the Historic Sharpe House, 402 S. Center St.  Parking is available at the Civic Center.
