What is Roundabout Raleigh?
Right now, Roundabout Raleigh is a loose affiliation of Hillsborough Street businesses that came together in 2016 to organize various events as a way to give back to our community. Some of our events benefit non-profits, some are just for fun. Stay tuned for details about upcoming events in 2017.
