The Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance

Fall Festival: October 9-12, 2014

A music lovers’ paradise, Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival is a family-friendly celebration of music, dance, art, & education. 4 days, 4 stages, & over 60 bands in beautiful, green Chatham County!

It is fall. The season of change, the season of reflection, the season of endless and beautiful color! It’s time to play in the leaves, to wonder at nature and the way she paints time’s passing, time to pull out the flannel at night, to clear the clutter and weighted moisture of summer and have a new perspective on things.

Here at the Fall Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival, we can’t wait to share the opening of this fantastic season with you! We will have many of the same things you have always loved about the festival as well as many new variations and additions. As always, there will be new music for you to experience and explore. Don’t miss the Happenings and all of the wonderful things you can learn and do during your 4 days with us! Purchase a craft to bring the festival home with you, find out how to build your own camper, walk around the farm with some nature experts, surprise someone with the floating jack-o-lanterns. Be ready to find yourself feeling like a child, playing in the fields with bare feet and laughing with friends new and old.

We welcome fall. We welcome you!
