SALISBURY – Hippie Fest stopped in its Volkswagen bus to spread the love this weekend in Salisbury, where it held its final two-day event of the year.

Hippie Fest is a traveling music and arts festival that travels the country to different states like Ohio, Nebraska, and Indiana to share its message of peace and good vibes with the masses.

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the Rowan County Fairgrounds, there was a long line for fun. Once people did, they could let their weird flag fly and enjoy their day without being judged. People wore wigs, costumes, or their wackiest clothes to the compliments and cheers of others. Everywhere you went, you could hear different classic rock songs blaring from the speakers, but you could also lay down and taste the real live music.

Vendors were there to sell t-shirts, tapestries, art, pottery, crystals, jewelry and dreamcatchers to hippies eager to add something to their collections. There was even a car show for people to show off their vintage cars and vans.

Noah Back is a musician who has been performing for Hippie Fest since 2019 and has performed at all events this year. Back continues to work with Hippie Fest because it has so much to offer everyone who attends and works there.

“There’s a very positive, very positive and loving undertone here, you don’t get a lot of other events that I play. So I’m really grateful to be a part of that vibe and hope to bring some of that,” he said.

It looks like Hippie Fest has delivered on its promise to give Salisbury a moment that will surely stand out in their minds.

” It’s awesome ! Nice people, great food, great little outings where you can find different and unique things, it’s really cute,” said Jane Bulla, the first participant. “The people, the attitude, the atmosphere, it’s great!”
