This Saturday, downtown Carrboro will play host to the Elderberry Festival – eleven hours of music, with dozens of bands and artists playing on five different stages at Southern Rail and Second Wind.

Norm’s Farms, a Pittsboro-based elderberry business, is hosting the festival – which features more than 30 acts, including James Olin Oden, Tea Cup Gin, and Too Much Fun. Local craft breweries and food vendors will be on hand as well – and the whole festival is free and open to the public.

Rodger Lenhardt of Norm’s Farms and musician James Olin Oden stopped by WCHL on Tuesday and spoke (and played!) with Aaron Keck on the afternoon news.

The festival runs from noon to 11:00 p.m. on Saturday. For a complete schedule of events and more information, visit
