2019 Spring Fest Preview


With inclement weather forecasted throughout the day, and after considering the safety of our staff, artists, performers, and festival-goers in mind, we have made the decision to cancel Live & Local Spring Fest 2019.

It's that time again!

This year's Live & Local Spring Fest will take place Saturday, June 8, from noon to 7:00 p.m. on Hillsborough Street and will be located between Chamberlain St. and Enterprise St. 

This free event offers fun festivities the entire family can enjoy, such as live music performances for all ages, interactive arts & crafts, beverages and food. In addition, several arts vendors will line the street offering uniquely crafted items to purchase, such as clothing, jewelry and home decor.

There will be six main stage performances and, during the event, Raleigh Brewing Company will be selling their locally-crafted beers. And, if you're looking for a bite to eat, stop by any of the numerous restaurants Hillsborough Street has to offer! 

This year's kid zone will include an abundance of activities to have fun in the sun, such as playing with hula hoops, sand pools, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, and lawn games. As well as activities to spark children's imaginations and creativity, like transforming recycled t-shirts into works of art, building a maze and more.  

A family-friendly festival, dogs are allowed within the outdoor footprint. For more information about all the great things to do at Spring Fest, visit
