The 24th Annual Flatwoods Festival will be held in Bennett, North Carolina, on September 9th and 10th, 2022. Bennett is in the southwest tip of Chatham County, so it’s a bit of a drive from most of the Triangle. It’s just 15 miles from Siler City.
Right now you’ll find more information on the Bennett Annual Flatwoods Festival Facebook page than the website.
Fall is looking great around the Triangle, whether you’re looking for something spooky or totally kid-friendly! Check out our HUGE list of fall festivals, as well as our list of pumpkin patches, haunted trails and corn mazes! We have also put together a big list of Halloween events and Trick or Treat events!
