13th Annual Heavy Rebel Weekender in the Arts District- July 5, 6 and 7
It wouldn’t be a Fourth of July week without the wicked return of Heavy Rebel Weekender to the Arts District. Now in its 13th year,the three-day musical event will be held July 5, 6 and 7 with more than 90 groups playing everything, including rock ‘n’ roll, punk, rockabilly, country and swing. It is arguably the most interesting downtown event of the year. The festival’s theme highlights the 1950s era, in which James Dean made rebellion tragically hip and spawned an entire trend in pop culture.
For the out-of-the ordinary, there is the popular Mud Wrestling Contest, a Beer-Guzzlin’-in-60-Seconds Contest, and a Krispy Kreme Doughnut Eating Contest. Scary! Full refreshments will be provided during the entire event near the Millennium Center.
Tickets for the event are $90 (for a 3-day pass) and $35 (for a single day pass) in advance, $100 (a3-day pass) and $35 (a single day pass) the day of the event; they can be purchased in advance at the Web site and at the door (Cash only). The Millennium Center is located 101 West Fifth Street.

The Winston-Salem Cycling Classic, a new professional biking event, will take place on June 15 and 16. This race offers something for everyone. Amateurs can participate in several rides, including the 80-mile Gran Fondo, which begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 15. The Gran Fondo ride is from Winston-Salem through Yadkin Valley, but there will be two shorter routes available as well. Whew!
The competition heats up later that afternoon when approximately 120 male and 80 female professional riders take to the streets on a 1.3 mile downtown course that begins and ends on Trade Street in front of IMG College and Sweet Potatoes. There’s no cost to watch the fast action! Beginning at 5 p.m., there will be FREE concerts featuring local favorite the Bo Stevens Band, The Connells (get out your best 80s clothes!) and headlining, pop country recording artist Delta Rae. The Winston-Salem Cycling Classic concludes on Sunday with more downtown races beginning at noon. For more info or to register for a race, visit http://www.winstonsalemcycling.com
