The Wyndham Championship has been named the title sponsor of the 4th Annual Hopfestto be held on Saturday, May 13, 2017. Founded in High Point in 2013, Hopfest moved to Greensboro in 2014 and has grown steadily each year. This year’s event, set for Saturday May 13 at Tracks Bazaar in downtown Greensboro at 302 W. Gate City Blvd., will feature 20 craft breweries, 10 food trucks and vendors, a 75-vendor flea market and experience zone as well as a wide offering of music and art. Hopfest is taking a huge leap in 2017 by welcoming the legendary Marly Marl and MC Craig G as well as DJ JS1 and former world beatboxing champions Kailla Mullady and Mark Martin. In addition to these musicians, Hopfest 2017 will also feature a lineup of graffiti artists including Meres One, the founder of 5pointz. “We’re also happy to be hosting a reunion of sorts for several key players during the lifespan of the graffiti mecca known as 5pointz; we are presenting a mashup of southern culture and the 5 pointz of hip hop. At the same time, we celebrate the incredibly historical PGA TOUR event, the experience of being out on the golf course and the Wyndham Championship’s place in our community’s history. We are providing a wide spectrum of experiences and bringing them all to life within the confines of Hopfest.” About Hopfest: Hopfest brings together exceptional craft beer, a solid selection of food trucks, local vendors, artisans and makers in a pop-up flea market and marvelous musicians – one-of-a-kind festival right in Greensboro’s backyard. Tracks Bazaar is proud to host the 4th Annual Hopfest on Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 4-10 p.m.
