Schedule for Saturday, Oct. 7

On Saturday, you’re invited to enjoy a full day of live music on the front porches of 10 homes and  four businesses around the Village of Oriental along the beautiful Neuse River. These free performances will run, some concurrently, from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Our featured group, The Red Clay Ramblers, will perform on The Main Stage  at Freemason Street and South Avenue beginning at 3:00 p.m. Below is the full day’s schedule.

Also, see our Festival Map to locate porches and other venues, and our Musicians page for bios and photos of the performers.
