[ARCHIVED] Carrboro Music Festival – This Sunday

Circular Logo with Purple Guitar and Green Background

CARRBORO, N.C. -- The 25th Annual Carrboro Music Festival is scheduled to take place at venues all over the Downtown Carrboro area on Sunday, Oct. 2.  The daylong festival starts at 1 p.m. 

Established in 1998, the festival was originally held on June 21 as an official affiliate of the Fête de la Musique, which is also known as 'Make Music Day'. 

One of the largest free music festivals in North Carolina, the Carrboro Music Festival will host more than 100 acts on stages all over Carrboro, with no tickets required. 

There is also a festival mobile app!  Released this year, the mobile app is available by searching 'Carrboro Music Festival' in your app store.  

A Festival Guide & Map is available, along with a sortable Excel database to search bands by name, genre, location, and time.  Check the website for the latest!

Venues include traditional sites such as Cat’s Cradle, The ArtsCenter, and Weaver Street Market lawn as well as new locales including Craftboro at South Green, 401 Main, and Dingo Dog Brewing Company. For more information, please visit carrboromusicfestival.com

Festival Parking, Shuttles and Alternative Transportation 
Each year, the festival draws a large number of attendees.  Please consider alternative modes of transportation when accessing the event.

We highly encourage festival attendees to walk or bike to the venues if possible.  We need to be able to accommodate our performers and allow them to park in designated areas near their respective venues, so public parking may be limited in some lots.  If attending the festival by car, please utilize the free park & ride shuttle from the Jones Ferry Road lot.

The Town of Carrboro has partnered with Chapel Hill Transit to provide a free shuttle for festival goers.  The shuttle will run on Sunday from 12 noon to 9 p.m. from the Jones Ferry Road Park & Ride Lot, located just south of the intersection of Old Fayetteville Rd. and Jones Ferry Rd., across from the entrance to Poplar Place Apartment Homes and beside University Lake Rd.

Shuttle service will run approximately every 15-20 minutes and drop-off locations exist near most of the music venues.
