If you’re searching for a music lovers’ paradise complete with a family-friendly environment, be sure to mark your calendar for The Shakori Hills Grass Roots Festival of Music and Dance to be held April 16-19 in Chatham County. Sponsored by the Finger Lakes Grass Roots Festival of Music and Dance Organisation, this event is used as a fundraiser for the Shakori Hills Community Arts Center.

Over the four day period you and your family can enjoy four different stages loaded with talented musicians from over sixty bands. You’ll find plenty of convenient parking at the festival site which is right off Henderson Tanyard Road; purchasing a weekend parking pass will be the best value especially if you plan to attend as many events as you can. In order to better plan your days http://shakorihillsgrassroots.org/festival/performance-schedule to locate the times and performances of your favorite bands.

It’s also a good idea to find a site map when you arrive at the Shakori Hills Music Festival so that you can easily find the restrooms for the children, vendors for your food and beverage needs, and the ATM so that you can get additional money when you find that bargain that you just can’t live without. Keep in mind that the Festival features foot paths with no vehicles allowed for the safety and security of you and your family members attending the Festival. Another idea that you might consider if you plan to attend as many of the shows that you can is to bring your camper. Be sure to check the guidelines for camping prices and policies before you plan to bring your RV to the Festival area.
