A celebration of North Carolina Brewing and Real Music”
2017 NCBMF will be held on May 12th – 13th, 2017


We are humbled by the amount of support Historic Rural Hill has received through putting on this festival. And it is for this reason that we continue to pour our souls into it. Every event held at Rural Hill - a 501(c)(3) nonprofit - is in support of our mission as a historic site and center for education. If you are interested in volunteering or donating to further our cause, please email our Development Director at [email protected].

Thank you,
The Staff at Historic Rural Hill
