Festival for the Eno – Thanks!

With the help of over 400 committed volunteers to paint faces, pour drinks, tighten ropes, mold clay, model t-shirts, sort compost, manage stages, sell tickets, and so much more, the 2018 Festival for the Eno is now in the books!
Thousands of attendees enjoyed Festival attractions at West Point on the Eno Durham City Park on two beautiful days last week. Early storms on Saturday cleared by early afternoon to blue skies and cool temperatures on one of the most pleasant days in Festival history!

Net proceeds from the Festival for the Eno help protect more lands along the Eno River. Thanks for all you did to support our largest annual event!
