Main Street in downtown Claremont is set to come alive during the Claremont Daze Festival. For the past 19 years, Claremont Daze has brought families and community members together for two fun-filled days of food, live music, and fellowship. Claremont Daze Festival will take place this year on October 2nd & 3rd.
What started as a small community day has grown into a two day event that draws thousands of festival-goers to downtown Claremont each year. The main stage will feature live music from a variety of bands playing a mix of gospel, country, bluegrass, top 40, and beach music. The festival also includes a wide variety of food vendors, beer garden, rides and activities in the “Kids Corner”, business booths, crafts and so much more!
Taking the stage on Friday, October 2 from 7:00-11:00pm is Too Much Sylvia. They offer a unique repertoire of music from the likes of Kid Rock to Zac Brown Band to the Black-Eyed Peas. Too Much Sylvia continues to wow the crowds each year at Claremont Daze. The festival continues on Saturday, October 3 from 9:00am – 11:00pm. Many bands will perform throughout the day. We will welcome The Cockman Family to start the day off with some Bluegrass/Gospel. Followed by Friends of Christ, Servants Voices and the Local Sigmon Stringers. We will Close the Night out with some Beach music performed by the famous Catalina’s!
Thousands continue to visit Claremont Daze each year which has helped the festival grow more and more every year. From a small beginning in 1996, this annual event has become one of the most respected festivals in Western North Carolina. Every year, the City of Claremont plans a bigger and more exciting event. Come out and join the fun!
