Four nonprofits will receive donations, Blue Cross NC will match ticketholders  donations to restaurant worker relief fund

Why was Thrive NC 2019 Postponed? When will it be rescheduled?

The third annual Thrive NC Festival presented by Blue Cross NC, originally scheduled for May 7-8 at City Market in downtown Raleigh, has been postponed a year until May 20-21, 2021 due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. Despite the postponement, Blue Cross NC will make sure the four previously identified nonprofits committed to improving food security will receive funding that originally was to come from ticket proceeds.

What do I do if I already purchased tickets?

Ticket purchasers will have the option for a full refund through Eventbrite, and will also have the choice to donate their ticket fee to the NC Restaurant Workers Relief Fund. Please be on the look out for an email from Eventbrite containing a survey to determine how you would like to proceed, once that is filled out we will process the rest.

When will my refund/donation be processed?

Due to the current circumstance, and the impact of COVID-19, we are anticipating that all refunds be processed within 6 – 8 weeks.

What do I do if I didn’t buy tickets? Can I still support?

Yes. Thrive NC strives to drive awareness and initiate change to improve food security, join us in assisting organizations around the state that are committed to improving food security in our community:
Farmer Foodshare
Urban Ministries of Wake County
Urban Ministries of Durham
