The Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance
Fall Festival: October 8-11, 2015
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!
In the sticky depths of August, we long for autumn. The cooler air brings our bones back and awakens them from their slow summer slumber. We can’t wait to cup our palms around warm mugs of coffee or cocoa and watch nature begin to close up shop, saving the most beautiful colors for the last show of the year. We love our spot here at the beginning of autumn, early October is a great time to gather with friends and come together to celebrate all that we have harvested this year and look forward to the next. Cool enough to bring out your sweaters for the night shows and enjoy a circle round the fire, but warm enough too, to play outside and enjoy what remains of the southern summertime.
Welcome autumn here with us at Shakori Hills! We truly have something for everyone in your family whether it’s music, camping, community gathering, dancing, games, parades, yoga, all kinds of food, jewelry, clothing, art (creating and observing), or just being downright silly. We allow children to explore and adults to relax. We encourage you-time and us-time. And all of this on some of the most beautiful land around! Come and watch the season roll in, we’ve got the coffee brewing…
The Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival is put on by the Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance Organization as a fundraiser for the Shakori Hills Community Arts Center.

Thanks to everyone who joined us, in work and in celebrating, at the 2015 Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance at the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park! We had so much fun. Even though it was a bit of a chilly start for Miami, it was the perfect time to be away from the chill of New York and North Carolina. Visit the festival’s website for information, and we look forward to you coming back (or joining us for the first time) next year!
