From Really Free Carrboro
The first fliers are finished announcing the ten-year anniversary of Carrboro’s Really Really Free Market this coming October 4!
Please print and circulate these widely. We are expecting participants from all over the region, making this a day to remember.
In addition to a variety of booths, installations, and the usual cornucopia of free materials, the festival will feature several different tracks of programming: bands, DJs, puppeteers, workshops and discussions, games, and more. If you would like to speak, perform, or organize some other activity, please email carrbororrfm (at) riseup (dot) net.
We have confirmed that the Recyclery will be there fixing bicycles—and giving them away! A licensed massage therapist has signed on, too, alongside other participants. Really really free bicycles, really really free medical care—the sky is the limit. What can you bring?
We will be publishing a preliminary schedule of events and performers shortly. (Alternatively, you could plan to surprise everyone!) There will also be at least two competitions—birthday cakes, and piñatas.
See you this October!

Because sharing is more fulfilling than owning
Because corporations would rather the landfills overflow than anyone get anything for free
Because no one should have to do without food, shelter, entertainment, and community
Because life should be a picnic, but it only will be if we make it happen
BECAUSE HELPING EACH OTHER IS BETTER THAN COMPETING OVER WHICH RICH MAN SHOULD RULE OVER US
