Getting to the Grady Cole Center
Go green at VegFest! Show your bike helmet or a valid public transit receipt and get a free raffle ticket! The Grady Cole Center is located at 310 N Kings Dr, at the corner of Kings Dr and 7th St, just outside of Uptown and adjacent to Central Piedmont Community College.
There will be several bicycle racks outside of the main entrance of the Grady Cole Center. Be sure to wear a helmet, as your helmet will be your proof to receive your free raffle ticket from the VegFest info booth!
If you choose to take public transportation to the event, be sure to save your ride receipt, and show it at the VegFest info booth for a free raffle ticket. The free CityLYNX Gold Line stops one block south of the Grady Cole Center, and starts either Uptown or the opposite direction from downtown Elizabeth, at Hawthorne & 5th St. Take the Lynx Blue Line to the CTC Arena stop, then from there hop onto the CityLYNX Gold Line to the CPCC campus stop. From there, walk one block north on Kings Drive to the Grady Cole Center.
Grady Cole Center is also available by bus. Lines 9, 17, and 27 are a few of the routes that stop nearby. Use the CATS trip planner to find a route convenient for you!
