Carrboro Music Festival

Join us throughout Downtown Carrboro on Sunday, September 29, 2024 for the Carrboro Music Festival! In recent years, the Carrboro Music Festival has been an effort to host a free one-day event (plus a kickoff show) that showcases Triangle-area performers and the varied musical styles they represent. While performers in prior years received t-shirts and food vouchers in appreciation for volunteering their time in the same spirit as the Fête de la Musique, groups who are officially selected will now receive paid compensation in the form of an honorarium.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately. If you have a question about the activity itself, please contact the organization administrator listed below.

The main event will be held on Sunday and will feature ~200 acts at venues all over Downtown Carrboro. Saturday's kick-off event will feature bands at Carrboro Town Commons, beginning at 2:00pm. 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 Town of Carrboro and the Carrboro Tourism Development Authority.  Generous support is also provided by the local business community.  Please visit the sponsorship page for a complete list of sponsors.
