September 23, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm

OctoBullFest is our annual celebration that helps raise funds for Habitat for Humanity of Durham. There’s music, food, beer, games, and a kids’ area ​featuring a bounce house, bubbles, Balloon Man Mike, and more.

East Parrish Street will be completely closed to traffic for a full-blown street festival beginning at 2:00 PM until 8:00 PM.

Did we mention the food? Because we are really excited about the food! We ​sell ​our​ ​100%​ ​pasture-raised​ ​beef​ ​burgers,​ ​house-made​ ​veggie​ ​burgers​ ​and​ ​ ​feature our​ ​authentic​ ​bratwurst​ ​for​ ​the​ ​event,​ ​all​ ​served​ ​on​ ​house-baked​ ​buns.​ Not to mention soft pretzels, and OctoBullfest Mustard/Mushroom Fries. There is always wine and beer available, including our​ ​Octoberfest​ ​lager​ ​aptly named​ ​“Stierstadt” (German​ ​for​ ​Bull​ ​City) which is brewed once yearly​ ​for​ ​the​ ​event.​

This event isn’t about oompa bands, it is about entertaining live music and fun times celebrating food, families and fall cheer. We welcome kids, adults, families, dogs and smiles to East Parrish Street.

OctoBullfest guarantees to be the ​best WURST day of the year.

– Hot Rooster at 3 PM-5 PM from Hillsborough

– Siren Band 6 PM – 8 PM from Raleigh

– Balloon Man Mike is back 3 PM – 5 PM
