DCP IS SHORT WALK FROM PARISH STREET AKA BLACK WALL STREET AND IT IS A SHORT JAUNT FROM DUKE’ CAMPUS. JUMP IN YOUR CAR AND NCCU IS NOT FAR FROM THE PARK. MANY ARE UNAWARE OF THE HISTORICAL CONNECTION OF THE DUKE FAMILY WITH THE LEGACY OF PARISH STREET’S RISE AND THE BIRTH OF NCCU.

TAPCORK: DURHAM IS NOT JUST A FESTIVAL OF DRINKING. IT WAS “CRAFTED” TO SHOWCASE THE GROWING BLACK & BROWN MARKETS FOR BEVERAGE BRANDS; SHOWCASING THE IMPORTANT GROWTH OF POC AND WOMEN OWNED BRANDS; AND, DRIVING TRAFFIC TO OUR AMAZING LOCAL HOSPITALITY VENUES.
DURHAM 200 WILL INCLUDE HOW THE COMMUNITIES FORGED NEW RULES. WE WANT TO BE PART OF THAT CONVERSATION. DASAN AHANU IS ALREADY LEADING THE LARGER COMMUNITY, THIS IS JUST ANOTHER STEP.
