Kinston, NC Summerfest continues to showcase a diverse selection of the finest talents from North Carolina. Get ready for beach, boogie and blues!

Summerfest brings people downtown

Kinston Summerfest is Eastern North Carolina’s hippest free outdoor music festival! This concert series is part of Pride of Kinston’s economic package to revitalize our historic downtown. Kinston Summerfest attracts thousands of people from Eastern North Carolina to shop and dine in our walk-friendly historic commercial district.
