If you haven’t heard, 2019 is Wasena neighborhood’s centennial year! That’s right, Wasena officially became part of the city in 1919, and we want to celebrate our past, present and future with you!

One hundred years is an exciting achievement, but it is especially meaningful given the recent revival of Main Street and the neighborhood as a whole. We want you to join us of the Weekend of Oct. 4th thru 6th for the centennial as a way to celebrate all that Wasena has to offer and highlight the our great neighborhood and help the community continue to build on the current excitement.

The event consists of two parts:

1. Specials and deals from Wasena businesses for the duration of the weekend – available during their normal business hours.
2. A booth hosted by the Wasena Neighborhood Forum that will be selling new Wasena merch, raffle tickets, giving out information on the neighborhood for both residents and potential residents, hosting a fun Wasena scavenger hunt, and more!

The booth will be located in the lot next to RND and across the Street from Line + Tow. The both will be open during the event hours, but business specials will be available during full business hours and may extend past official Wasena Weekend hours.

Please check back here as the event approaches for more information. You can also follow us on instagram (@wasenaroanoke) or on Facebook for more information.
