Good seats are still available to the Diet Pepsi “Got to Be NC Ag Jam” presented by Food Lion on Sept. 13 at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavillion at Walnut Creek in Raleigh. This first-time food and music festival features country artists Blake Shelton, Tracy Byrd, Jake Owen and Granite Falls native Eric Church plus three additional country and Southern rock artists.

Tickets for the family-friendly event, which will feature N.C. food products from local growers and producers, are on sale through all Ticketmaster outlets and online at www.ticketmaster.com. Tickets will be $15 for lawn seating, $20 for reserved seating and $25 for Gold Circle seating.

“Between the delicious local products and some great country music, it’s going to be a real celebration of our state’s agricultural bounty,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “I am so excited to show off N.C. agriculture and give people a chance to taste and buy some of the freshest local products North Carolina has to offer.”

The festival will kick off at noon and last until 11 p.m. Gates open at 11 a.m. Seven music acts will perform throughout the day-long event:

  • Blackberry Smoke, 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
