In conjunction with our One Day Sale on seedless watermelons, we're pulling out all the stops and celebrating all things watermelon.

Sit down and enjoy a summery bit to the tune of our bluegrass band.

Father's Day Beer Tasting
Friday, June 14th
4:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Outdoor Patio at Whole Foods Market Chapel Hill, Free

You don't have to be a Dad to enjoy this event, just a beer lover! We've invited four breweries to sample more than 15 varieties of beer. Our beer team will carefully guide you through the tasting experience and the first 12 customers to arrive will receive a free pint glass. It's the perfect opportunity to make up the ultimate beer sampler for yourself or for Dad - or both!

 

When you're finished at the beer tasting, grab dinner on the patio from our "Pop-up" Rodeo. In honor of Dad, we're serving ribs, grilled corn, cake and a refreshing beer shandy.
