Packapalooza Preview

Join Live It Up! On Hillsborough Street and NC State for our annual kick off event. Packapalooza 2019 is on August 24, 2019 from 2-10pm. Hillsborough Street will be shut down and filled with over 300 vendors including local business, student organizations, and lots of fun activities for the entire family! 

The festival will be split up into zones: Arts Zone, International Zone, Service Zone PackPride Zone, Green Zone, Senior Class and Young Alumni Zone, Wolfpack Zone, and Play Zone! Each zone has a different sponsor and something for everyone.

Throughout the day, Hillsborough Street will be lined with lots of vendors, including some of our favorite Hillsborough Street merchants! Be sure to walk around and visit the vendors. The booths will feature games, prizes, giveaways, and more; you never know what you might win or find!

Be sure to visit all three stage throughout the event to catch performances from dance groups, live bands, and other artists. Packapalooza 2019 will wrap up with a concert on the main stage, near the Bell Tower at 8:45pm. Get there early for a chance to see Delta Rae rock the stage. Delta Rae is an Americana gospel-tinged country-rock band. Their sound sits somewhere between Nickel Creek and Adele. Check our information about our headliner here. And check out their music on Spotify

Trust me when I say that this event is one NOT TO BE MISSED! With all the food, fun and games, and music there is a guaranteed chance of a good time!
