Destination Recreation - Destination Dix Festival Saturday, July 23

Destination Dix, a free summer festival at Dorothea Dix Park is Saturday, July 23rd from 10am to 7pm. The event celebrates the one year anniversary of the city purchasing the 308 acres from the state with its purpose to develop a new open-air oasis for the city.

Come enjoy the live music on three different stages, food trucks, a beer garden, vendors, rides and more. If all else fails, you may encounter a wild Pokémon roaming around Dix.

Performance Schedules - Chatham Co. Line  will perform on the Oak stage at 5:45pm to 7:00pm, and Bombadil will be 4:00pm to 5:00pm. For additional acts and times on the Oak, Acorn and Pine stages, Click Here.

Festival Activities - Including a Ferris wheel, tethered hot air balloon rides, kids crafts and inflatables, a vision wall, lawn games and a Touch-a-Truck area. There will also be shade areas to escape the summer sun as well as a misting tent for cooling off.

There will be plenty of food and beverage options for purchase: The PIT Pig Pickin', 25 food  trucks and vendors, Beer & Wine Garden and a Picnic area with tables and chairs.

What to Bring - Bring your kids, your friends and ideas for the future of Dix Park using "think BIG, think BOLD". Bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs if you wish. Umbrellas are okay, but they have to be weighted, not pushed into the ground or staked. You can bring a small cooler or picnic basket of food and non-alcoholic drinks, but they'll have lots of food trucks selling delicious food, wine and a beer garden.
Park and Ride! Park for free and ride a shuttle to Destination Dix. Forty shuttles will run continuously from a variety of pick-up locations downtown and on NCSU campus. Park your car at one of the free decks, hop on the shuttle and enjoy a quick air-conditioned ride to the fun at Destination Dix. Please remember there will be no public parking on the festival grounds. Click Here to use the interactive map to find the parking deck and shuttle stop most convenient for you.

History 101 - Massachusetts reformer Dorothea Dix persuaded the North Carolina legislature to authorize a hospital for patients with mental illnesses where they would be treated for their illnesses rather than simply locked up. The resulting 1848 legislation required a site with a cheerful view, copious sunshine, and good drainage, providing fresh air and enabling therapeutic farming and gardening. Miss Dix helped select the location, a hilltop southwest of Raleigh that had been Spring Hill, the home of Theophilus Hunter.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
