Carrboro, NC - "Paris of the Piedmont"

Carrboro is a densely populated, colorful and progressive little town known originally as 'West End' because of its location west of Chapel Hill (which is lovingly referred to as “the University Next to Carrboro” by town residents).

In addition to its nationally acclaimed Farmer's Market (recently ranked one of the top six Farmer's Markets in the country), Carrboro takes great pride in hosting interesting and fun filled events and festivals. Examples include the Carrboro Music Festival - 'Fete de la Musique',  the West End Poet's Festival,  the Carrboro Film Festival, monthly Art Walks and more!
