Drive-in Events

With the safety of our community in mind, Holly Springs Parks & Recreation is hosting a series of drive-in events. We look forward to bringing the community together in a fun and safe environment. 

Barefoot Manner

Barefoot Manner

Saturday, October 17 
Gates open at 6 p.m., Concert begins at 7 p.m.
Sugg Farm at Bass Lake Park

Enjoy live music again with a drive-in concert! We’ll stream the music on stage right to your car radio (or any FM radio you bring). Cars will be parked so you can comfortably see the stage. Tickets are sold per car and you can bring as many people as your car has seat belts. Audience members must be in a car to gain entrance to the concert. Join us for a live (socially distant) performance!

Barefoot Manner is a five-piece musical group whose sound is heavily rooted in high energy newgrass, soul shaking funk, and musical experimentation on all levels. The Boys of Barefoot Manner have an overwhelming passion for making music, stirring it up really fast, and mixing in some positive reggae and Caribbean vibes. The music has been labeled everything from Americana Groove-grass to Cosmic Funk-grass, to bluegrass and beyond. Essentially, the music of Barefoot Manner is an original blend of bluegrass instrumentation in a genre-free world. Each live show is a new experience for both the band and its fans and the Manner Men strive for perfection and uniqueness in the music they create.

Tickets: $20 per car

Tickets on sale September 25 at or (919) 567-4000.

A big thank you to our concert sponsors!
