Celebrate fall with Capital Bank, the Midtown Raleigh Alliance and all our sponsors and partners. This fall festival is truly a family event - bring the dog too! Enjoy the 4th Annual Midtown Raleigh Chili Cook-off, live music, a huge KidZone of activities, Oktoberfest food from Wegmans and beer from Trophy Brewing. The Holt Brothers Foundation will host the Midtown Sports Trivia Contest, so if you think you 'know it all', bring it! Single grand prize awarded. Enter the carved pumpkin contest by bringing your original carving from home ~ there is an adult and kids division to compete it. Enjoy craft cocktails from Palooza Spirit Station while you kick back and welcome fall. Raffle tickets available.

Live music and entertainment provided by Oak City Collaborative and CBS-17 morning anchor Bill Young. Kids will not want to leave. They'll be busy playing our giant games, painting pumpkins, climbing and sliding on our huge inflatable obstacle course, having their faces painted, meeting the NC State mascots and visiting the traveling petting zoo.

Event proceeds benefit the KidsCAN program at Duke Raleigh Hospital.
