This is a quick list of some fun events coming up as we round out the month of August and enter September. The list includes several events I’ve either enjoyed in the past or have recently caught my eye. Also, while I don’t have a specific dates listed below I highly recommend catching a Durham Bulls Game before the regular season comes to a close the first week of September. Not only is the weather perfect for a night at the ballpark, but you still have a chance to catch fireworks after their Friday & Saturday night home games.
Feel free to leave a comment below if you have a suggestion for additional events you think I should include.
- Bob Marley Tribute Band at North Hills Midtown Park
- Cary Lazy Days Arts & Crafts Festival
- Gouge Wrestling at Nickelpoint Brewing
- Beer for Beagles at Lonerider Brewing
- African American Cultural Festival
- Durham Central Park Food Truck Rodeo
- Hopscotch Music Festival
- Beericana Beer & Music Festival
- Durham Centerfest Art Festival
- Apex Jazz Festival
- Carrboro Music Festival
- Pepper Festival
Recurring Summer / Fall Music Series
- North Hills Friday Night Tribute Band Series
Each Friday August 21st – Oct 16th

Trent and his wife Colleen are two of our favorite people in the wine business. We first met Trent when he was working with his father’s wines at Livingston-Moffett. The family sold Livingston-Moffett a few years back, but Trent has carried on the family tradition with his own wines under the Moffett, C&T Cellars and Screenplay labels.
Trent will be pouring:
Screenplay 2013 Chardonnay
C&T 2012 Napa Valley Merlot
Screenplay 2010 Red Blend
