The 2017 Festival will be held on Saturday, September 23rd and Sunday, September 24th. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Festival.
The main event will be held on Sunday and will feature over 200 acts across 29 venues. Saturday's kick-off event will feature 3 bands at Carrboro Town Commons, beginning at 1:00pm following the Farmer's Market. A free, ticketed, show will be held at the Cat's Cradle at 8:30pm.
The Carrboro Music Festival is an effort to host a free two-day event that showcase Triangle-area performers and the varied musical styles they represent. All of the performers donate their talents to foster a strong sense of community and to reveal their talents to a wider audience.
The event is a product of a coordinated effort by the Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department and the Carrboro Music Festival Planning Committee.
This program is supported by the Carrboro Tourism Development Authority.
