After a break from the tradition last year due to the pandemic, the annual Beast of Bladenboro Festival will draw a crowd from all over the southeast once again this year! The event is scheduled for October 29th and 30th.

Beast Fest is an event planned and hosted by Boost the Boro, Inc. in Bladenboro. Many sponsors from the area contribute to the event. According to the Boost the Boro website, “Beast Fest has become one of the fastest-growing and largest attended weekend festivals in Southeastern North Carolina.”

Boost the Boro President Terry Nance stated, “We are really excited for the 2021 Beast Fest. We are expecting a great turnout.”

Live entertainment for the event will include North Tower Band on Friday night, 87&Pine on Saturday afternoon, and Gary Lowder and Smokin’ Hot on Saturday night. The day will be filled with entertainment from local talent, and special emcee, Sarah from “The Big Wake Up with Don Chase and Sarah” on 95.7 WKML radio station.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. If you would like to sponsor this popular event, email boosttheboro@gmail.com.
