Main Stage


The Festival’s Main Stage is located at the corner of Freemason Street and South Avenue, across from Lou Mac Park. Our headliner for Saturday, Oct. 7, The Red Clay Ramblers, will be playing beginning at 3 pm on a stage overlooking a broad grassy expanse with wide views of the beautiful Neuse River. Also appearing on the Main Stage is Oriental’s own Saltwater Gold, 12 noon-1:30 pm. The Main Stage performances, as well as all porch performances, are free.
