New Date For Fest in the West 2020

Cary, NC — Fest in the West, Western Cary’s annual signature festival, has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 7.

In light of the uncertainty surrounding future local and federal Stay-at-Home orders, the Goodtree Studio staff and their partners The Town of Cary made the decision in early March to move the event which was originally scheduled for Saturday, May 2.

Fest in the West 2020 will mark the festival’s fifth year of bringing together the community with no entry charge to enjoy a long line-up of food and beer vendors along with live music and cultural performances, lawn games, contests, and a kids zone.

According to Festival Director Lindsey Chester, the event has always served to achieve the same thing — helping build community in western Wake County, specifically western Cary and Morrisville. Fest in the West returns to the USA Baseball National Training Complex off of  Green Hope School Road this year with an expanded footprint, extending further inside the complex to accommodate more vendors and festival-goers.

These are the local vendors and entertainers you can look forward to seeing at Fest in the West on Nov. 7 from 11 AM- 5 PM.
