The event is a product of a coordinated effort by the Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department and the Carrboro Music Festival Planning Committee.

Carrboro's day long (Sunday, September 29), free festival featuring over 180 performing acts at 25 indoor and outdoor venues. In the space of a few hours within downtown Carrboro, a listener could hear Bluegrass, Folk, Jazz, Country, Rock & Roll, Classical, and World Music. This was Carrboro's effort to 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.

An estimate of 10,000 attended the 2013 event.

This year we partnered with the North Carolina Folklore Society on Saturday (September 28) in a celebration of the organization's 100th Anniversary.

The Folklore society celebrated with music, food, art, demonstrations, and much more at numerous venues around Town. More information about their organization can be found at N C Folklore Society. In collaboration with the NC Folklore event, the Recreation and Parks Department scheduled four diverse musical groups at the Town Commons between 2:00 & 6:00 p.m.as a contribution to the celebration.

The 17th Carrboro Music Festival will be held last weekend in September, 2014.

Applications to perform at the 2014 Carrboro Music Festival will be available on this web site from May 10th through July 10th.
