Roots Fest Day 4

Notes from 2017 Roots Festival

Dead Man Winter performs during the 4th day of the 2017 Fayetteville Roots Festival.

Day 4 of Roots Fest 2017, Saturday, was the only day the festival plaza -- location of the pop up bistro, festival merchandise, and art works created throughout the weekend -- was open to the public. The entire morning's schedule was open to the public, in fact, with music acts performing on the plaza and at the Fayetteville Public Library, a yoga class in the Pryor Center off the square, and back-to-back Taste & Talk panel discussions. This popular series that pairs chefs, farmers, brewers and other food experts with each other for discussions on their respective crafts was expanded from last year and hosted at intimate venue Stage Eighteen. The most noteworthy program of the morning, though, was the annual chef cook-off, which took place during the Farmers' Market.
