Carolina in the Fall Music & Food Festival

September 20, 2019 - September 21, 2019

North Carolina in the fall of the year… thinking about it conjures up images of brilliant colors and cooler temperatures. A time when life slows down and nature’s beauty speeds up! With that as a backdrop, Carolina in the Fall™ brings “New Carolina Music” to Wilkesboro, NC, located in the picturesque foothills of North Carolina.

On September 20th and 21st, in historic downtown Wilkesboro, the Kruger Brothers will host some of North Carolina’s best folk/ roots music bands during the Award Winning Fourth Annual Carolina in the Fall™ Music and Food Festival. They will be joined by a variety of bands from around the world that tip their hats to the rich musical history of Wilkes, the Heart of American Folk Music™.

In its fifth year, Carolina in the Fall™ has become an annual pilgrimage of bluegrass and folk music lovers. In addition to great music, those that attend will be treated to some of North Carolina’s best food as each year trucks from the region will bring their secret recipes to feed the masses and vie for the Carolina in the Fall™ Food Truck Championship trophy. Additionally, local vineyards and regional craft breweries will be onsite to provide a taste of the region’s best beverages.

As a lifestyle festival, Carolina in the Fall offers more than just music and food. Other events include the Bobby Martin Songwriting Competition, and The Chad Lovette Memorial Trail Run and Ride in support of the American Cancer Society . If you need a little getaway from sitting and listening, Contra and clogging dance classes and Artist Workshops are held both days of the festival. Due to the size of the venues and closeness of the seating, pets are not allowed in any of the music venues.

Round Two pricing began on June 4th and is as follows: Single Day pass $40.00, Two Day pass $60.00. The VIP package that includes reserved seating for both days and the evening jam session is $130.00. Round Three pricing will begin August 1st.
