Budbreak Wine & Craft Beer Festival

noon - 5 p.m.

The popular downtown street festival showcases a superb selection of North Carolina’s premier wineries and breweries, along with food vendors and live music on the main stage. The event takes place on the northern end of Main Street in front of Old North State Winery.

“We’re in the heart of the largest wine-growing area in the state; we have a strong musical heritage, and the mountains are our backdrop for it all,” says Bob Meinecke, festival director. “The festival incorporates all of those key factors for our area.”

Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 the day of the event. Ticket packages, which include two tickets, lodging and transportation to/from the festival, are also available.
