Chapel Hill may seem like a small town, but this area is teaming with brewers, chefs and musicians alike.
The 11th Annual Pepperfest is bringing them all together for one food-packed Sunday afternoon. Bring the kids to get their faces painted while you enjoy live music and offerings from 60 different chefs.
For the over-21 crowd, you can pair your peppered plates with beer from 20 local breweries and distilleries. This festival is the perfect chance to explore beyond the normal boundaries of Franklin Street.
Before you leave, be sure to donate to support local farmers, foodsheds and sustainable farming practices.
