This inaugural festival is produced by the City of Raleigh’s Historic Resources and Museums program. Join us from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m for a free celebration of the rich history of the founding and creation of North Carolina’s Capital City. The event will feature living history that includes a loom, a blacksmith, cooking demonstrations and a revolutionary war encampment. In addition, there will be a kid’s zone, old-fashioned games, free carriage rides and vendors. Main stage performers will include the Tryon Palace Fife & Drum Corps, Sir Walter Raleigh, Jonkonnu dancers, and the musical stylings of Ken Bloom.
