About Us

Campbell University, Friends of Raven Rock State Park, NC Friends of State Parks and the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation have teamed up for a celebration!  Strong communities are built on shared experiences and we invite you to share your journey with us -- your ideas, talents and investment in Harnett and Lee Counties and the Cape Fear River Basin make this a great place to live and work.  Campbell University's Cape Fear River Initiative brings students, faculty and community leaders together to rediscover our past, showcase our creativity to inspire our youth and innovate real solutions to the many challenges that our rural communities face.  All festival proceeds support Friends of Raven Rock State Park (501c3) and scholarship funds for our Cape Fear River Fellows and Algernon Sydney Sullivan Scholarship Initiatives.  Thank you for your support!
