Join the Haw River Assembly in Saxapahaw from 4-8 pm on Saturday, May 4th for an afternoon of live music, the opening of the Saturdays in Saxapahaw market season, a Paperhand Puppet parade, a guided river walk, canoe rides for kids, a kayak raffle, a silent auction, food trucks, and more! The Haw River Festival is FREE, and all donations collected during the festival support the Haw River Assembly’s work to protect the river. Each year over 1,000 people come out for this annual celebration of the river! This event kicks off the fifteenth season of Saturdays in Saxapahaw, a summer long market and music festival.
The festival kicks off at 4 pm with Triangle Afrobeat Orchestra’s eclectic mix of African percussion and Jazz, followed by the warm and folksy three part harmonies of Honey Magpie. Ragweed Brass will round off the lineup with their take on old-time American music from the early 20th century, featuring a banjo and a trombone!
