No tickets are required; however, RSVPs help us plan for how many people to expect and you can receive important event information including inclement weather information.

What to Bring

  • Seating: A blanket or low beach chairs to sit on, so that you don’t obstruct the view for others.
  • Food and Drinks: While we encourage you to enjoy the food trucks, you may also bring your own food and beverages. Wine and beer are ok but please be responsible. (No liquor is allowed)
  • Outdoor Essentials: Remember the sunscreen and bug spray. This event takes place in the grass with uneven surfaces, please keep this in mind for footwear.


If we need to postpone due to inclement weather, we will communicate through Eventbrite email to ticket holders and on Dix Park social media.


  • The event will be held on the Flowers Field at Dix Park, 2105 Umstead Drive Raleigh 27603
  • The best park entrances to use are Hunt Drive off of Western Boulevard or Blair Drive off of Centennial Parkway.


  • Parking is available in the parking lots off of Blair Drive and Umstead Drive.
  • Due to the high volume of people and limited parking, please carpool if possible.
  • Do not park in the grass – driving on tree roots damages the trees and we want to keep the 150 year old oaks around for as long as possible!

Restrooms and Dogs

  • Port-a-johns are the only restroom facility available at the event area.
  • Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome, but please use your best judgement to determine if your pooch will enjoy the event!
