Summer Events and Activities in Fayetteville



Summer means baseball in Fayetteville. The city’s team, the Fayetteville SwampDogs plays in the Coastal Plain League. You can catch a home game at J.P. Riddle Stadium, nicknamed “The Swamp.”

The Cape Fear Regional Theatre hosts the annual Blues ‘n Brews festival Saturday, June 4, 2016. Attendees can sample more than 100 beers from regional and national breweries, while jamming to live tunes performed by some of the region’s most popular bands.

During the summer, the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival sponsors free concerts every third Friday at Festival Park. Bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket, and enjoy a night of music, ranging from rock to Bluegrass.

Beginning May 21 through June 25, Fayetteville’s Downtown Alliance and the Airborne & Special Operations Museum sponsors the Field of Honor – a stunning display of American flags on the museum grounds – each representing someone who has served in the military, a retired serviceman or serviceman killed in the line of duty.

Fort Bragg’s Fourth of July Celebration could be called the state’s largest backyard barbecue. The all-day event takes place at the Main Post Parade Field and begins with a parachute demonstration and flag ceremony that culminates with a fireworks display. Bring your own snacks or check out the local vendors – all while enjoying a free concert by some of the region’s hottest acts.
