Carolina in the Fall

20 September 2019

The fifth annual Carolina in the Fall Music and Food Festival, winner of the coveted IBMA Momentum Event of the Year Award, continues its’ tradition of celebrating the heritage of western North Carolina on September 20th and 21st, 2019. Over 100 musicians, chefs, vintners and craft beer brewers from the region will gather on Main Street in Wilkesboro, NC to engage audiences with the best of their craft.

Wilkes County’s own The Kruger Brothers will once again be the Festival hosts and welcome some of North Carolina’s best Folk/ Roots music bands. They will be joined by bands from other regions that tip their hats to the rich musical history of Wilkes, the Heart of American Folk Music. This year’s line-up includes The Kruger Brothers, Balsam Range, Chatham County Line, EmiSunShine, The Black Lillies, Hawktail, Trout Steak Revival, Scott Mulvahill, Cicada Rhythm, The Contenders, The Honey Dewdrops, Williamson Branch, Hank Pattie, & the Current, Terry Baucom and Will Jones, Presley Barker and many others.

“It is hard to believe we are in our 5th year of CITF. Last year saw some big changes come to Carolina in the Fall”, says Festival Director Michelle Isom. “We listened to our festival guests and added reserved seating. Folks loved having a seat waiting on them when they arrived. Because we limited the number of reserved seats, general admission seating saw very little impact. This year we will maintain the same limited number of reserved seats that are part of the VIP Package. We are implementing a couple of changes that we hope will make the CITF experience even better. We are adding a stage in Sweet Smiles Candy Store that will focus on local talent exclusively. Additionally, we are extending our Friday Night music by an extra hour in the Downtown setting. This will be a fun filled hour of music designed to get you on your feet and get loud. We will have the Carolina Jam only on Saturday night at the Yadkin Valley Event Center. We heard many people say that the Friday Night Carolina Jam left them tired on Saturday morning, so this should let folks get some rest and be ready for a great day of music on Saturday.” More information is on the festival website, www.carolinainthefall.org.
