The 2017 Apex Music Festival (Formerly the Apex Jazz Music Festival) will continue its tradition of playing host to great musicians in and around the Triangle. The Beer & Wine Garden / Main Stage will operate again on the Apex Chamber of Commerce property, and feature phenomenal musical acts! Performances will again be featured in a wide variety of outdoor and indoor venues along Salem Street. Additionally, there will also be a great selection of food vendors to choose from!

As the only adult-focused fall music festival in the North Carolina Triangle area, this extremely popular pub-crawl experience is expected to draw over 25,000 music fans to Downtown Apex this September 16th. Tickets for the 7th Annual Apex Music Festival will be available soon! Festival wristbands will include entry to all the venues for the entire event. Please note that all persons entering the Beer & Wine Garden / Main Stage or purchasing beer/wine on Salem Street will be required to provide a valid ID confirming that you are 21 or over.

The main street (North Salem Street) through Historic Downtown Apex will be closed to vehicular traffic starting at 2:00 PM until 1 AM from Center Street to Chatham Street for the safety of the high volume of pedestrian traffic during the event. Center Street & Chatham Street will remain open to traffic.

We would once again like to thank our wonderful sponsors of last year’s Apex Music Festival, including Johnson Hyundai of Cary, Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry, Clarity Vision of Apex, and Hampton Inn & Suites of Holly Springs.
