This festival was a massive success as it was reported the event was held at Dorothea Dix Park in April across two days. The festival had an estimated 80,000 attendees. The six-million-dollar economic impact figure was reportedly a conservative estimate of the festival’s direct impact on the area’s economy.
The Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau reported that the 2022 festival created an estimated $6.7 million in direct economic impact.
