WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Senior Republican officials have confirmed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s visit to Winston-Salem on Monday.
Officials say the event will be held at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Annex. Doors will open at 5 p.m. The pre-program will begin at 7 p.m., with main speakers taking the stage at 8 p.m.
“Senior Republican officials are thrilled that on Monday at 8 o’clock, they will be presenting – in a major sign of unity – a Republican ticket with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, Sen. Richard Burr, Gov. Pat McCrory and Congresswoman Virginia Foxx,” a party spokesperson said.
The Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Annex has a maximum capacity of about 3,500.
Party officials “believe this unique opportunity in unity will attract far more interest from Republicans than the venue will be able to accommodate once tickets become available online.”
Tickets are available on Donald Trump's website.
The lot directly in front of the Annex will be blocked off for security purposes. Parking will be at the LJVM lots. Those lots will not be opened for parking until 3 p.m. If people want to park beforehand they'll have to find elsewhere to do it.
Protesters will have a designated area in a parking lot off of Shorefair Drive, behind the Annex.
