Giveaway: Fayetteville Roots Festival

This giveaway is now closed. The winners have been emailed. If you did not receive an email, you didn’t win this time. However, if one of the winners doesn’t respond, everything opens back up. The final results will be posted on our blog in the next day or two.

In case you missed the news, the Fayetteville Roots Festival takes place late next month inside Greenhouse Grille. The lineup features an awesome group of emerging acoustic roots, Americana, and folk music artists from across America. A few locals, including 3 Penny Acre, are also set to play.

There’s a free preview show from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. during Greenhouse Grille’s brunch service, but the evening’s headlining acts are part of a ticketed event.

So how do you get a hold of the tickets? There are two ways, actually. You could head over to the Fayetteville Roots Festival website and buy some right now, or you could try your luck at winning one of two pair we’re giving away here on the Flyer. As a bonus, one of the two winners will also score dinner with the bands at 4 p.m.
