The Raleigh area has become known as the capital of live music in North Carolina and is a perfect fit for IBMA’s World of Bluegrass. The Oak City also boasts museums and historic sites, great food, super shopping, world-class sports and outdoor recreation, as well as stellar performing and visual arts, and all in a beautiful, park-like setting. We’re looking forward with great expectation to September!
Located centrally on the East Coast, Raleigh is halfway between Florida and New York City making transportation easy. The location is convenient for trips to the beautiful beaches of North Carolina's Outer Banks, to the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains to the west or to the "Home of American Golf" to the south in Pinehurst.
