Where should I park? There is plenty of free parking in Carrboro. Use one of many municipal lots, or the Hampton Inn parking deck. Please refrain from parking in our lot to make room for 5th Season Gardening customers. We strongly encourage locals to bike or walk to the festival.

What about water? We will have bottled water available, people are encouraged to bring their own water bottles. Staying well hydrated is key to having a good festival experience.

Is the festival outdoors? Yes, breweries will be serving under a covered pavilion but most of the town commons is exposed. We suggest sun glasses and a hat.
