Cooke Street Carnival

When: Sat., Oct. 15, 1-6 p.m. 2011

Cooke Street—The sideshow-themed third iteration of the Cooke Street Carnival features many of the same draws that Raleigh residents have grown to love about the fall festival—local bands, food and beer vendors, artisans, kissing booths, photo-op boards and children's activities—along with some new twists: a dunking booth, pie-eating contests and "circus freak" entertainment. Geared perfectly for a fall afternoon, the musical lineup features Gothic indie twang from Nests, sunny '60s pop-rock splendor from the Tomahawks and dynamic singer-songwriter duo the Small Ponds. Johnny Swank patrols the street with his guitar and DJs spin between sets. The free State Fair alternative runs 1–6 p.m. on Cooke Street between Lane and Jones streets in Raleigh's Oakwood neighborhood, just a few blocks northeast of downtown. —Spencer Griffith
