The Carolina Ramble & Reunion is a family-oriented fall festival featuring live music from hosts Possum Jenkins and their family of bands. We're incredibly excited to be spending the second annual festival with our musical extended family and friends, but want to encourage all Ramblers (looking at you here musicians...) to conduct themselves in a manner befitting a family event.
Gates open at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 27, and 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Music will last from 5:00 to 11:00 p.m. on Friday, and from 11:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Saturday. THERE IS NO LIVE MUSIC SCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY, SEPT. 29.
