The Carolina Ramble and Reunion takes place at Braysh Farm in Bethel on Saturday, Sept. 26.

On Saturday, Sept. 26, the beautiful Brayshaw Farm will come alive with music, camping, food, fun and games as regional Americana act Possum Jenkins presents the second annual Carolina Ramble & Reunion.

Located in the Bethel community of Watauga County, the family-friendly gathering will last from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and offers free camping to families and individuals.

The Ramble will feature two stages, with music kicking off at noon and lasting until 10 p.m. Performers at this year’s event include Possum Jenkins, Soul Benefactor, The Worthless Son-In-Laws, Wurlitzer Prize, Molly McGinn, Hilltop Riot, Spice Creek Ramblers, The Menders and Through The Hills.

In addition to the day’s musical offerings, the Ramble will feature yard games and festival activities for kids and adults, including arts and crafts, corn hole, yoga, frisbee golf, a bonfire and much more. Food vendors will be open throughout the event and include Winston-Salem’s renowned Screaming Radish food truck and Boone’s own F.A.R.M. Cafe.

“Hosting last year’s Ramble was a special experience for all involved,” said event organizer and musician David Brewer. “We’re thrilled to be putting on another quality, family-friendly event and are excited to improve on last’s year success.”

Those with a sweet tooth will be happy to know that the Ramble is adding a charity cake walk to this year’s proceedings. Funds collected will be given to a Bethel couple who recently lost their home to a devastating fire.

The Ramble will also feature some of the band’s local allies in sustainability, including Appalachian Voices, as well as DAISEE, the renewable energy education trailer, and SunCatcher—Boone-based makers of passive solar greenhouses.

Reservations are $35, which includes onsite camping. Children 12 & younger are admitted free. Purchasing reservations in advance is strongly encouraged, as space is limited. To purchase reservations, visit www.carolinaramble.com and click the tab for the “Online Store.”

All reservation holders will receive a wristband at the gate, which opens at 10:30 a.m. All onsite sales will be cash only. Online ticket sales will conclude on Wednesday, Sept. 23.
