Mmmm, Bacon! Come party with us out in the country and help light the fire for another 50 years of land and water protection.
WHERE: at the Confluence Nature Area in Cedar Grove. **The Confluence is where the east and west forks of the Eno meet to form the main stem of the river just north of Hillsborough. It’s an extraordinarily beautiful site, but not ordinarily open to the public, so be sure to take advantage of this special opportunity.**
WHEN: Saturday October 1, from 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Bring your family and friends to frolic and have fun in the beautiful northern Orange County countryside!
TICKETS: are just $15 for adults and $5 for kids under 12 (5 and under are free), and can be purchased online right now or at the door. Price includes live music by the indomitable DR. BACON and JOE TULLOS, s’mores, craft beer from our friends at North Coast Brewing Company (or your choice of non-alcoholic beverages), hay rides, and all other activities.
WHAT TO BRING: your favorite picnic foods, lawn chairs or blankets; a telescope for stargazing, a Frisbee for throwing; instruments for jamming around the campfire. Fetch Hotdogs will be there if you’re traveling light and come empty handed. **Please note: there is no camping at The Confluence. We request that you leave your four-legged fur friends at home (but please pat them on the head for us!).**
