Shakori Hills is music and events venue nestled on 50 acres of farmland in Pittsboro, North Carolina. It supports the local music and arts community through cultural events and outreach to local schools while teaching environmental awareness and sustainable living practices.
The venue includes marked camping sites with outdoor showers. Camping is free with the purchase of a General Admission ticket.
Tent camping is available on the venue grounds with weekend passes at Creekside East and West behind the Grove Stage. We ask that the campsites for this event take up a small footprint and be courteous to the surrounding camping neighbors. Generally, a 10×10 space for a tent and small popup are what you’ll see at campsites. You are welcome to bring your own food and dish ware or treen, and a washing station will be available.
Propane canisters may be used on-site but must leave with their owners. Canisters cannot go in the trash or recycling. The festival has to pay a lot of money to recycle these canisters.
If there is not a fire ban in Chatham County, then small campfires are allowed within existing rock fire pits on a first come first served basis. No rocks may be removed from the “Rock Garden” and fires must never be left until fully extinguished.
Showers have a men’s and women’s side with 4 private stalls on both sides. A communal changing bench and cubbies are on both sides.
If you prefer not to camp, there are a number of places available to stay within a short distance.
We value the health and safety of our staff and patrons. For information on our COVID policy and required waivers for workshop participants, visit our Health and Safety Policy page.
