While you’re enjoying the music from the more than 100 artists at MerleFest, don’t forget to engage in our many activities to get the full MerleFest experience. 

Flex your musical muscles or learn from others with the Jam CampPickin’ Place and Songwriters’ Coffeehouse. 

Younger MerleFest fans will enjoy spending time in the Little Pickers Family Area and checking out the Youth Showcases. 

Thinking ahead to Christmas, birthdays, or just looking for that something special? We offer plenty of variety in The Shoppes at MerleFest, an area sure to satisfy any shopper. 

Our Raffle and Silent Auction features special prizes throughout the festival and all proceeds directly benefit Wilkes Community College. Try your chance for an instrument, piece of art, or more! 

We even offer Nature Walks that are fun and educational! 

Oh, and let’s not forget a MerleFest Fan Favorite- the Midnight Jam! 

With all this to do at MerleFest, four days may not seem like enough!
