THIS IS THE 2017 FESTIVAL POSTER
THIS IS THE 2017 FESTIVAL POSTER

Beaufort Music Festival (BMF) is a community-supported, volunteer-run organization working with and for the community to bring music and tourism to Beaufort and Carteret County. This free festival takes place each May in Beaufort’s historic downtown, and the town is packed on Friday and Saturday with locals and tourists alike enjoying the beautiful weather and some pretty great music.  

Two of the main goals of the Festival are to present a diverse music line-up and to introduce attendees to fresh musical acts. In addition, the BMF strives to be a family-inclusive event and to provide an immersive experience for all ages over two days with food trucks, a family area with children’s activities, and a beer garden highlighting North Carolina craft brews.  

Some recent past performers include the Avett Brothers, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, St Paul and the Broken Bones, Margo Price, Richie Havens, Southern Culture on the Skids, the Banditos, the Rosebuds, the Steep Canyon Rangers, Tift Merritt, Mandolin Orange, American Aquarium, Donna the Buffalo, Yarn, River Whyless, AJ Ghent Band, Chatham County Line, Old Man Markley, Bombadil, Justin Townes Earle, Wrinkle Neck Mules, and many, many more.
