Communique: Rochelle Whiteside Reflects On Pender Spring Fest Turning 40

May 2, 2018

Pender Spring Fest-games, food, music, dancing, and booths full of 100% Pender County goods (no traveling vendors). Rochelle Whiteside started this shindig 40 years ago in Burgaw and it's still going strong.

The art can be viewed on Thursday 5/4  from 6:00pm-9:00pm at ArtBeat. The Street Dance is Friday 5/5 from 6:00pm-10:00pm. And everything is happening on Saturday, 5/6, 9:00am-3:00pm, plus some gospel on Saturday evening.

Listen above to hear our short conversation with Rochelle, Ross Harrell, and their son Noah Harrell; listen to our extended conversation below.
