WKNC’s Local Lunch Live is a partnership with NC State’s Visit Centennial Campus to showcase student performers. Begun in fall 2022, the weekly series takes place at The Corner, an outdoor venue on the corner of Main Campus and Research Drives. All WKNC Local Lunch Live events are free and open to the public. Bring your lunch or grab a bite at one of the food trucks often parked across the street.
