Harvest and Hornworm Festival

Saturday, September 10th, 2016

10:00 am - 4:00 pm Rain or Shine

Celebrate North Carolina farming culture and history at Duke Homestead with our Harvest and Hornworm Festival. Don't miss the looping contest and Hornworm Race! This event will feature live music, local arts and crafts vendors, hands on history, and the last tobacco auction in Durham!

Steph Stewart & Mario Arnez live on Stage!

Steph Stewart and Mario Arnez of Steph Stewart and the Boyfriends and BLUE CACTUS will be performing two sets during Harvest and Hornworm Festival. Since making music together as the Americana string band Steph Stewart & the Boyfriends, Steph Stewart and Mario Arnez have joined forces as the classic country-inspired duo BLUE CACTUS. From gritty honky-tonk to heart-breaking balladry, BLUE CACTUS is the one stop shop for everything that made country music matter. Just one prick & you’re stuck
