Our little town has a lot to offer any weekend: great restaurants, fun attractions, and natural beauty. But this weekend, with May Festival of the Arts in full swing, there are even more reasons to visit!
Friday evening from 4:00-10:00pm, White Street will be transformed into a block party. For the past 26 years, local artists have welcomed the public into their homes and studios to view their latest works. And over forty guest artists will squeeze into every possible nook and cranny along the historic avenue to show weaving, woodworking, watercolors, jewelry, photography, and more. Food, drink, musicians, and costumed strollers will add to the festive atmosphere.
On Saturday, the fun moves to the heart of downtown, Basin Spring Park. From 10:00am to 4:00pm, artists offering textiles, jewelry, painting, sculpting, and fine wood designs will discuss their process and medium. And from 5:00 to 7:00pm, saxophonist Grady Nichols will be performing free!
Finally, on Sunday, 12:00 to 5:00 pm at the 1886 Crescent Hotel, Books in Bloom is a celebration for writers and readers – featuring presentations by 13 authors.
