Family-friendly MerleFest, presented by Window World, will be held THIS WEEK, April 28-May 1., on the campus of Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. You don't want to miss this!

MerleFest, dubbed by Rolling Stone as “the gold standard for bluegrass, Americana, and string music festivals,” is THIS weekend in Wilkesboro, NC!

About MerleFest: 

MerleFest was founded in 1988 in memory of the son of the late American music legend Doc Watson, renowned guitarist Eddy Merle Watson. MerleFest is a celebration of “traditional plus” music, a unique mix of traditional, roots-oriented sounds of the Appalachian region, including old-time, classic country, bluegrass, folk and gospel, and blues, and expanded to include Americana, classic rock, and many other styles. The festival hosts a diverse mix of artists on its 13 stages during the course of the multi-day event. MerleFest is the primary fundraiser for the Wilkes Community College Foundation, funding scholarships, capital projects, and other educational needs.

For the Kids:

The Little Pickers Family Area is full of activities for all ages: pictures with Flattop, amusements, games, face painting and so much more! Look for the big tent to find all of our crafts. Crafts include:

  • Painting

The Little Pickers Stage performances include unique acts selected with children in mind, such as scheduled “meet and greet” with Flattop. Bring a camera and get your photo made with Flattop! Entertainment will be scheduled throughout the weekend on the Little Pickers Stage.

Two large Shade Tents, located within the Little Pickers Family Area, provide a place for guests to sit down and relax and for children, accompanied by a parent, to nap. Enjoy the Shade Tents when you need a little break from the MerleFest action.
