Festifall accentuates Chapel Hill art!

artGuide Magazine is proud to once again be working with an amazing North Carolina art event that brings together artisans from throughout the South. Festifall, October 2nd - check it out!


On Sunday, October 2nd, immerse yourself in the arts at Chapel Hill’s premier arts event of the year, the Festifall arts Festival.

Spend the day and allow your senses to be stirred by the music, dance and performance art events along West Franklin Street. Stroll through the Handmade Artist Market and find your muse or your next perfect gift. 

This year’s event will feature almost 100 artisans from all over the South representing the finest in painting, photography, jewelry, glass, ceramics, wood, metal, fiber and mixed media artworks. You might even find yourself dancing to an incredible line up of musical performances from 12:00pm-6:00pm. Discover your new favorite downtown restaurant whose doors will be open to welcome you or new this year, Food Trucks!

Bring the whole family and discover the many interactive activities for the young and young-at-heart. The Interactive Zone hosts activities and performances designed especially for young and young-at-heart festival-goers.  Make a kid’s craft with Kidzu, or let the Poetry Fox compose a poem just for you.  The air will be filled with the melodies and sounds of over 25 music, dance and comedy performances at three stages along West Franklin Street.

You will hear just about anything at Festifall: music ranging from blue grass to hip hop, laughter, dancing feet, and the cheers of gymnasts. Spend the day and take your time to savor all that Festifall has to offer. With over 15,000 attendees expected, there is no doubt that this is one of the biggest festivals of the year. Come to historic West Franklin Street on October 1st for a day of artful discovery!
