Get outside and celebrate summer at Dix Park! We will have something for everyone to enjoy at this event, including live music, arts and crafts, performance artists, vendors and amazing food trucks. There will also be a special surprise!

SunFest runs from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. Arrive anytime and stay as long as you like.

Food trucks are cooking up special menu items that you can only find at SunFest! Come dine at Sarge's Chef on Wheels, Curry In A Hurry Truck, Gussy's Greek Street Food, Rare Earth Farms Food Truck, Poblanos Tacos and More, Lumpy's Ice Cream, and Cocoa Forte! Trophy Brewing Company and Bull City Ciderworks will be pouring their brews, too!

Bring the kids and make some fun arts and crafts, sponsored by City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources, The Scrap Exchange and Home Depot!

Shop the local arts, crafts and artisan food product scene as we bring arts, crafts and artisan food producers to the park! You're bound to find the perfect item for yourself or a fun gift for a friend. We'll even have a photo booth from ZimZoom Photobooth on site so you can capture a snapshot of the day!

Finally, join us for a bluegrass concert featuring the hit band Shiloh Hill from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

A parking map is available.
