PITTSBORO — Pittsboro will host its inaugural Local on Main, Pittsboro’s Farm and Art Dinner from 5-8 p.m. on May 19 in downtown Pittsboro.

The event is a fundraiser for Main Street Pittsboro, an organization through the N.C. Dept. of Commerce, dedicated to “economic development within the context of historic preservation.”

“That means we aim to keep Pittsboro’s downtown core unique, fun, and vibrant to attract shoppers and new businesses that are (ideally) locally-owned while being mindful of the town’s history that ultimately sets Pittsboro apart from all other small towns,” a release from the organization said.

Local on Main will feature area farmers, chefs, restaurants, craft beverages, and visual and performing artists for a pop-up dinner on Hillsboro Street, Pittsboro’s main street downtown. Hillsboro Street will be closed from the courthouse to Thompson Street to accommodate the event.

It will begin with a cocktail hour in the Page Vernon Pocket Park. Attendees will then move down the block to sit at tables and chairs and dine on a three-course dinner prepared by local chefs using local foods. About a dozen chefs are collaborating to create the meal using ingredients from 24 local farms. Guests will be entertained by more than eight visual and performing artists throughout the event.

Tickets for the event are $100 and there are also opportunities to volunteer. For more information, visit Main Street Pittsboro’s website at www.mainstreetpittsboro.org or via email at mainstreetpittsboro@gmail.com.
