Things kick off on May 11th with CultureFest which takes to the streets of Oxford from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

If you haven’t figured it out, music is a central theme to our fun. Let the rhythm of summer carry you away at Music on Main in Oxford on June 7th and August 9th. Groove to live music performances while savoring local delicacies and soaking in the lively atmosphere of Main Street.

Creedmoor gets into the act on Thursday, June 13th when the town hosts the Granville Chamber of Commerce music series Alive after Five featuring The Konnection Band. Join us for an evening of music, food, and community spirit as we dance the night away under the stars.

Transport yourself to a coastal paradise at the Beach Music Festival on June 15th at the Barn at Vino. With live bands, food trucks, and refreshing beverages, it is the ultimate summer beach party in Granville County.
