I love a good giveaway in the morning. I’m super excited about festival season and the next couple of giveaways we have. Speaking of which, the Shakori Hills Festival of Music and Dance is coming up May 5th – May 8th. If you’ve never heard of Shakori Hills, it’s a feel-good festival that is meant to bring the community together and celebrate a common good through music, dance, and art.
The 4 day Chatham County festival is hosted by a non-profit organization, The Shakori Hills Community Arts Center, and sees over 60 bands perform across four stages. In addition, there are dance and yoga workshops.
Camping is a big part of this festival although you have the option to buy a ticket for specific days. The other neat thing is that it is super kid friendly with kids 12 and under getting free admission and access to a variety of special kids workshops and activities. Meaning that it could be an incredible weekend of fun for the whole family if that is something you desire.
Abe, one of our new contributors, who will be covering the festival has this to say: “When I picture the Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, I picture a stage in a clearing, surrounded by forest, with tents scattered across the landscape. I picture women dancing in long, flowing skirts, flowers in their hair, and smiles upon their faces. I picture men in tank tops, and cut offs, in leather jackets, and plaid shirts with beards, moustaches, mutton chops, and soul patches. The thing is, I’ve never actually been to Shakori. I have no idea how accurate, or grossly inaccurate, my picture is. I have been listening to legendary accounts of friends and strangers who have attended the festival for years, and I am extremely excited to see what all the talk has really been about.”
If you want to try and see what all the talk is about, you can get your festival tickets here. You can also try your hand at winning a free ticket! Our friends from The Shakori Hills GrassRoots Team are giving ONE winner two day pass tickets that can either be used for two separate festival days or you can bring a friend and both enjoy one festival day.
