Kernersville, NC —–


This year the Kernersville Police Department will be hosting National Night Out in a different fashion.  We have joined efforts with Kernersville Parks and Recreation, Kernersville Chamber of Commerce and Kernersville Fire and Rescue, in order to enhance the National Night Out experience.


Traditionally National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out builds the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community togetherness. For years, we have hosted this at the Police Department or in the neighborhood community.


This year we are taking it to another level by going outside of the normal routine. We would like to invite everyone in the Kernersville community to come out and join us at Ivey M. Redmon Sports Complex with a concert and fireworks. We encourage people to bring chairs and/or blankets to lounge on during the concert as it will be a picnic type atmosphere. The event is for everyone and is free admittance.


Food trucks will be available with items for purchase for dinner and snacking during the event. We would like to thank Don Juan’s, Kona Ice, and the Table (Hosted by 1st Christian Church) for having their trucks available to accommodate our event.


A Fireworks show will follow the band at the conclusion of their 2-hour performance. This event will be held on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 from 6:00 PM until 9:15 PM at Ivey M. Redmon Sports Complex, 788 Beeson Road, Kernersville, NC.


Traffic conditions in this area may experience temporary congestion so please be patient during this time as we try to make this an enjoyable experience for everyone.


We would like to extend a special thanks to this year’s National Night Out sponsors!
