Spring Daze

Spring Daze Arts Festival: April 25 in Cary

Spring Daze

Cary, NC — Spring Daze, one of Cary’s largest events of the year, is next week on April 25, 2015 at Bond Park. Here’s what you can expect from the always-popular arts and crafts festival.

22 Years of Spring Daze

Spring Daze falls right at the top of the list with Lazy Daze (its summer sister) as one of Cary’s largest festivals. Spring Daze 2015 will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 9 am-5 pm at Bond Park. It’s an arts and crafts festival, but there’s truly something for everyone at the event–and it’s a great way to get more involved in Cary happenings.

Next week’s festival will be Cary’s 22nd Spring Daze.

Art, Music & Food

The festival will feature over 180 North Carolina artists, entertainment on four stages, lots of food and Cary’s annual Earth Day Celebration. My favorite part of Spring Daze is perusing the vast stretch of artist booths–in the past, I’ve seen paintings, drawings, pottery, books cut into sculptures, hanging decorations, woven goods, jewelry and more.

There’s always a funky, creative find at Spring Daze along with a large selection of more traditional artwork that anyone can enjoy. This year, more than a dozen local entertainers will be performing live music, dance and storytelling on small, intimate stages throughout the festival.

Of course, food is around every corner too. All Spring Daze food vendors are either non-profits or commercial food operations that have partnered with a non-profit.

You can find barbecue, hamburgers, hot dogs, gourmet sandwiches, kettle corn, strawberry shortcake, fruit smoothies, ethnic food and more at the festival.

Cultural Arts & Kids Stations

You’ll also be able to learn more information about our town’s cultural arts organizations.

If you see a booth, be sure to stop by and say hi–they’ll be able to give visitors some helpful information about the art and diversity of Cary, and they may even have some fun, interactive activities for both kids and adults. There’s always a children’s village filled with hands-on crafts to keep kiddos entertained during the festival.

Earth Day Celebration

Earth Day falls right before Spring Daze on Wednesday, April 22, 2015. It’s Cary tradition to celebrate Mother Nature at the festival with booths that teach guests about recycling, water conservation, public transportation and Cary’s greenways and parks.
