Community Mega Festival, Oct. 3-4, Downtown Raleigh
Celito will join the wildly popular Wide Open Bluegrass StreetFest, Oct. 3-4, as sponsor of the celito Spotlight Lounge VIP tent.
Wide Open Bluegrass is among North Carolina’s largest music festivals, featuring major stars, international fans and more than a hundred thousand community revelers. Now in its second year, the extravaganza proved a perfect fit for Boone.
“When we look at an opportunity to give back to our community we really try and focus on organizations that fall into one of three categories: the military, organizations serving children, or the arts, said celito’s Catrina Vienrich. “When the opportunity to support IBMA presented itself we knew that it was a core focus and core value fit for our company and we wanted to be a part. As a Raleigh born, locally grown company we are advocates for our city and are proud to support an amazing arts organization and event such as IBMA.”
Mayor Nancy McFarlane welcomed celito’s involvement: “The IBMA World of Bluegrass combines the work of event organizers, the artists’ talents, and the support of sponsors and the community to create an impressive annual showcase and festival of all things bluegrass. The commitment and solid support of event sponsors has enabled organizers to create and stage a world-class festival for all to enjoy and Raleigh is excited to be the venue of choice!”
