North Carolina hosts dozens of fall festivals. Food festivals are often the star in the Triangle, rounding up food trucks, breweries, chefs and distillers. Here is the Triangle’s guide to 2018’s fall food festivals.
Broadway musicals are always big draws for Triangle audiences, and the month-long “Hamilton” tour stop at Durham Performing Arts Center is possibly the biggest ever. But there are plenty of other choices this fall.
J. Cole’s Dreamville Festival, Hopscotch Music Festival, World of Bluegrass and Art of Cool are all on the Triangle’s music festival schedule for the same month, September. Is there room for everybody?
Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, was a big ‘get’ for a Raleigh concert promoter in the late 1960s. After four cancellations, at least one due to injury, she played Raleigh’s Dorton Arena around 1969.
J. Cole is behind Dreamville Festival, a daylong event that will be the first major concert event at Raleigh’s Dorothea Dix Park. Cole is a rapper from Fayetteville who has been hugely successful with five straight No. 1 albums, including this year’s “KOD.”
South Carolina band NEEDTOBREATHE is bringing their tour to Red Hat Amphitheater on Aug. 22. The band released “Forever On Your Side (Niles City Sound Sessions)“ with “Acoustic Live Vol. 1,” coming this fall.
Cord-cutters who canceled cable or satellite can still watch 2018 NFL and college football (and other TV shows) with streaming services like Sling, DirecTV Now, Playstation Vue, Hulu Live, YouTube TV, FuboTV and others.
Fall in the Triangle brings a ton of festivals and fairs, including the NC State Fair, Sparkcon, Capital City BikeFest, Pirate Fest and more. Here’s a sampling of some of the festivals and events you’ll want to put on your calendars.
