Durham, NC - Next month, Duke employees can help a local cause while splashing around - and saving some money.

Through June 29, faculty and staff can purchase discounted tickets to the Festival for the Eno, an annual event presented by the Eno River Association to raise money to preserve and protect lands along the Eno River. The festival, which runs July 4, 7 and 8, features live music on four stages, almost 100 craft artists, hands-on exhibits, food and more. Festival goers are also encouraged to take a dip in the river.

Adult tickets for Duke employees cost $14 for a one-day pass and $36 for a three-day pass. Tickets for teens (ages 13 to 17) are $10. Kids 12 and under get in free. Faculty and staff must have a valid DukeCard to buy discount tickets and can call (919) 620-9099, extension 202 to order.

"The Festival for the Eno is a great way to celebrate summer, get back in touch with nature, hear some great music, and spend quality time by (or in) the river with the family, friends and community," Rebecca Conley, assistant coordinator for the Festival for the Eno. "Funds raised help the Eno River Association continue to protect drinking water and preserve lands for all of us to use."

Musical acts highlighting this year's festival include bluegrass band The Gibson Brothers, banjo player Curtis Eller and "old time music" band Craver, Watson, Hicks and Newberry. Dozens of other acts are also scheduled to perform.

Additional information can be found on the Festival for the Eno website and the festival's Facebook page.
