A Fundraiser to Buy the Land
Come out to Shakori Hills on Saturday, August 3rd for our4th Annual NC Stars in the Round Fundraiser. It’s the perfect way to spend a summer evening with friends and festival family! All funds from the event will go toward the purchase of the land. Once we own the land, we will have more freedom and infrastructure to carry out our mission of being a center for arts education and community-building for Chatham County and beyond.
The evening’s highlight will be a singer-songwriter circle featuring some great local musicians and songwriters. Each songwriter will share their unique musical talents one song at a time, then pass the mic to the next. Our stars include: Ironing Board Sam, Brett Harris, Kamara Thomas, Jon Shain, Curtis Eller, Mary Johnson Rockers, Randy Dean Whitt, and Liz Moudy.
Chapel Hill’s Morning Brigade, will open the event with their sweet melodies and indie pop tunes, and our old friends Deep Chatham will close out the night with their deep, dark, and lively brand of rootsy, bluegrassy, rockin’ goodness!
As is our newest tradition, we’ll have the Shakori Hills Vinyl Lounge going after the bands finish. So, stick around!
There will be pizza from the Shakori Hills Pizza Shack, beer from Carolina Brewery, and the Lil’ Coffee Barn will be open with coffee and snacks. This is a family-friendly event and all are welcome to camp overnight on Saturday.
Tickets are $10 advance or $15 at the gate and can be purchased HERE or by calling 919-542-8142. Kids 12 and under get in free! Tickets are available from now until the day before the event. Gates open at 6pm, show starts at 7pm. Camping is also free!
