Festival for the Eno
Graymatter is pleased to be invited to perform at the Festival for the Eno this year. It's the 35th annual event, held every 4th of July weekend, and for two days brings together 65 musical acts on 4 stages, beautiful crafts, demonstrations, kid activities, food trucks and vendors, a beer garden and ample opportunity to play in the beautiful Eno river.
The Eno River Association puts on this fun event as a fundraiser and 100% of the proceeds of the ticket sales go towards their good works. What do they do? The association focuses on land protection, advocacy, education, and land stewardship. They also hold guided nature walks for all ages and fun summer nature camps for kids. This event is not only important for raising funds so they can continue their work, but it's a way to celebrate the beauty of the Eno and the surrounding watershed, and protecting the area for future generations. The association was formed in 1966 and currently protects 6,900 acres, most of which is in the Eno River State Park, along with other parks and natural areas. It also owns 259 protected acres and hold conservation easements on an additional 828 acres. For more information on the weekend festival go to www.enoriver.org/festival.
