Flush Fest 2023

June 3, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 11:00 pm

FlushFest: World music for world toilets. West Hillsborough’s homemade music and film festival. June 3, 2023. 711 Eno Street Hillsborough. Noon – 11 PM.


FlushFest is a funky, homemade music festival, held in a West Hillsborough backyard. There will be music from North Carolina and around the world from noon till 11 pm, and a silent film with live piano accompaniment at dusk.


In 2017, independent filmmaker Grace Beeler needed funds to finish a documentary film about a Brazilian sewer system which could serve urban slums. Her neighbor Peter offered to throw her a music festival. And FlushFest was born.


FlushFest has grown into a West Hillsborough institution. And Grace’s film has grown into larger projects and into an NGO, After the Rain. This year Flushfest will support the After the Rain project The Appropriate Sanitation Institute. 


As always, FlushFest is a community-building, fun day. Admission is by donation. There will be plenty of great local music, kids’ activities, food trucks, a photo booth, croquet minigolf, and lots of fun. Local hotels will be offering FlushFest discounts, including the historic Colonial Inn. Come on out and enjoy the day, or spend the weekend in fabulous Hillsborough.
