Pre-Thanksgiving event invites community to come together and share a meal in downtown Spartanburg


Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, a time for food, family, togetherness, and awkwardly looking down into your plate to avoid making eye contact with that uncle who wants to talk politics. Wouldn't it be great if to have a different sort of gathering leading up to the annual food coma that kicks off the hectic holiday season? Well, make plans to be in downtown Spartanburg on Saturday, November 19 for Hub-Bub's Community Table.


From 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Spring Street will be closed-off (between Broad and Main streets) 150-foot table, a proper mass-communal artifact if ever there was one, will be set up. The meal will be chili, provided by Café Around the Corner (with vegan option available), and the event will also feature live music and games. Tickets are $10 in advance, and you can buy them by following this link.


And after you've got the holiday season started the right way, be sure to mark your calendars for December 10 and 11, as Hub-Bub brings an outdoor holiday market with art, crafts, and gifts from local makers as well as food, drink, and live entertainment to Wall Street, letting you get your holiday shopping done in a new way that doesn't involve nightmarish trips to big box stores where you'll be buying the same gifts everyone else buys.
